Default Quitting helis, back to fixed wing, servos?

Helis are too expensive for my lack of skills. So back to what Ive done since 1970 or so. Building new airplanes but a simple Swizzle Stick from BalsaUSA to get back flying skills. Now that I have a Spectrum radio Id like to use some new servos. Have gotten used to the heli digitals. I need a good servo for .40-.50 size aircraft. 2 aileron and 1 each rudder and elevator. What Hitec servos fit that bill in the less than $30 apiece budget range?

All the best!

Probably any of the standard size Hitec servos with about 45 oz/in torque or better would do for a .40/.50 size airplane. Then run them with 6v.
