I think the best solution would be two servos in the wings, however the problem with the HK 1.7g servos is that they are designed for 3V RX - most people will most likely use 5V RX (unless you intend to use the AR6400, etc).

Mounting the servos would mean a fairly large servo hanging under a thin wing (there's little to no internal room to mount these).

I would hide them in permanently mounted foam replica drop tanks or bombs.

My next Cox warbird was going to be a BF-109 however the challenge of getting a nice Corsair aileron conversion is quite tempting.
You can always depron sheet the bottoms of the wing and the servos would hide inside. The plane would probably fly better, too.

I think I'll do this with my FW 190
