the cox motor should be a 6 volt motor, whereas the hobbico is a 3 volt. trust me i know aboutthe hobbico: it lasted one flight on my (old and dying) kokam 340.
The bottom of the wing isn't flat, there's a big hunk of foam at the center where the wing "snaps" attach. You'd have to route around the wing snaps making sure not to weaken the area if you were going to use a single servo. You have to take a look at the bottom of the wing to see what I'm talking about.

You could try to mount a really small servo in each side of the wing...perhaps something like the cirrus microjoule servos....although I haven't heard the best thing about the microjoules.
