Default Servo question

Would this be powerful enough for a throttle/brake servo for the FG mt-5? I was hoping to only have to but one extra servo(steering).
Planned radio:[link=]Radio clicky[/link]
Included servo:[link=]Servo clicky[/link]
More questions: Can I use digital servos with the included receiver?
Can I use the aforementioned servo in conjunction with a digital servo?
Any better ideas?

The z590 will work fine for the throttle brake, if you plan on putting front brakes on you will need something with more torque. We always recommend the hitec 645-MG.

I have had bad luck with hitech servo's. I have went with three Multiplex rhino 4 servo's using the KPD alloy radio plate. I bash very hard and have not had any failures.

I currently use an Airtronics M-8 with Spektrum receiver and will upgrade to the M-11 when it arrives. It is sometimes better to purchase your electronics separatley since lower level servo's are provided in kits.
