Those servos really are not to small. Of course they won't take the abuse that a larger servo may take but they do the job very nicely. I used Futaba 3156 servos on all the surfaces of a 3.5 xplorer and they never had a problem. Even after some heavy flying they never had any slop. Only problem I had was the servo had such a small foot print that I would pop them loose from the skin. At fall fest I was launching it off of mono on a b winch and holding lots of tension. The elevator was so crisp. Next open ship will have the same servos.
