Bellcranks for aileron actuation? How old fashion! The 1/4th scale Champ I built in the mid 1980s had two aileron servos, mounted up close to the center section and push rods running out to bellcranks and the ailerons were actuated the same as your doing. At the time it was rumored that long servo leads would cause interferance and I think the Y-connector had chokes on them to help with this problem, also. If all the connections are tight; but, smooth actuating, this method is certainly viable.

Like someone previously stated; I would have used two aileron servos, as I think this is the easier method, now.
