Default servo size

I am currently flying a 30 size extra 260 with savox 222 oz servos.I would like to move up to a 50-60 size airplane . Can I use these servos if I fly IMAC with these, safely.
Thanks Ted

If there are enough, absolutely. My first IMAC plane was 100cc. It had two JR8411s on each aileron, one on each elevator, and two for the rudder. Their torque were in that same range.

It is also dependent on your linkage setup. If you're going for 3D throws, those wouldn't be enough. If you set up the plane with the correct mechanical advantage you will be fine.

I'm still flying a old 35% Carden Extra (100cc) with JR DS8411 (188 oz-in) servos all around for IMAC type flying. One for each aileron, one for each elevator half, and 2 on the rudder. Flies extremely precisely and there has never been an indication that it needed more torque.
