While not the most economical solution, in my opinion, the best route is to go with wing mounted servos for each aileron. This allows for a short pushrod connection, and a more positive response.

The mod takes little time, and can be done with scrap materials that you already have.

The additional costs come from adding a servo, Y-harness and servo extensions.

Unless you are going for a scale look, the servos can be surface mounted in the rib bays, surrounded by balsa sheeting. The sheeting provides surface area so the covering has ample area for adhesion.
