Default which servos

Ok I have only been flying about 3 months. I am finishing up building a sig kadet lt-40 kit and now I need to buy the election tonics. I have a spektrum DX6. I plan to use all spektrum equipment but I'm not sure all what I need. I have a spektrum reciever already and I am looking to buy the servos next. I can seem to find anywhere with good info on what servos I need to use in the kadet. Can some one please tell me what kind of servos I need. And please give me a brief break down of all the servo language I been reading about. Also after the reciever and sevo what else will I need.

Thanks in advance for the help!!

You will need the standard analog servo for that aircraft such as he Futaba 3003.

Just about any servo out there will work with your radio. The servos do not need to be super duper servos, any standard servo will work.

Here are a few. So many to choose from.

I have a dozen or so of these. They are way over kill for your plane, but the price is good.

I have some of the Solar servos. They are good servos but they are very power hungry. If you use them I would get A123 batteries for them. Or a 2ah 5 cell NiCad. Run of the mill NIMH's will likely cause problems.

I like 5 cell AA NiMH. Easier to charge than LiPo or A123. Spektrum receiver will be happier with 5 cell, not 4 cell. I like Radical RC batteries and dealing with them.
