Well I don't know if they are the best but I am starting to use the Hitec HS65MG servos. They are metal and almost the size of the stock Bixler servo. You can get them on ebay for about $25 each. A cheaper version ($20.00) is the HS65HB servo with has a "karbonite" gear. Stronger that plastic gears but not as strong as metal. I would put metal gears on the airlerons(2) and elevator(1). A karbonite on the rudder(1) and a plastic on the flaps(2). Six Servos in total.

Good luck!
