Do I really need digital servos?

I'd go with the less expensive servos... They should have no problem doing the job of controlling the plane. No servo programmer device "needed" (if you get the digitals, you will eventually feel a "need" for the programmer device).

People have been succesfully flying R/C for over 25 years (and close to 40 more years of varied success levels...) without digital servos... If you don't feel you need them, you probably don't.

A "4.8" volt pack can exceed 6.0 V fresh off the charger, and can hold in excess of 5.3 V for a large portion of the useful charge. which would indicate that a "6.0 " V pack should be capapble of exceeding 7.4 V fresh off charge, and could hold 6.5 V for a significant amount of the useful charge.

NiCds are not a "flat" voltage type battery like the automotive Lead-Acid type. (has a narrower percentage range... not really flat either. Appx 11.5 to 12.8 useful range, with the alternator putting out appx 13.8)
