Scott thanks for posting the link, It good to see how someone else is doing this. Regarding the motor, it is a tight fit for a 35mm outrunner there is not much room for the wires to get past the spinning motor. I have glassed in a length of thin wire to keep the motor wires away for the motor, in the link to the other build I see a fairing has been added and wires taken out of the fuz. This is not an issue if an inrunner or even outrunner with gb were used. Good luck with that decision.
The rudder gives plenty of movement with this set up, about 32mm each way, 64mm total. Much more and you will hit the elevator. The front of the rudder had to be relieved to avoid popping off the ball link on full right rudder. There is a piece of spruce added behind the surface to mount the ball link in.
The fin post also had to be slimmed to increase movement.
The aileron servos are Vigor VS-12M, not sure whether or not these are good enough, there is some movement in the gears. If they effect flying qualities they will be ripped out.
The other 4 servos are all Turnigy TGY-90s, they seem fine for the other jobs.
