Futaba S3010 servos will work perfect for this. You can even use S3004 if your budget is tight, but the 3010 has plenty of torque for everything. I ran them in my 4*120. Hitec HS645MG are also good strong servos, but may be overkill for the 60. I used those for the tail on the 120.

You'll be fine using standard servos...but....most of us go bigger on our next airplane....so if you'd like you can use Hitech5645's all the torque you'll ever need on that airplane but you should get a bigger battery and a bigger charger if you use the 5645's....but a standard servo will be just fine...I flew my 2nd airplane a 4 Star 60 for a couple of years..on standard servos .I did have an aileron servo failure but it gave me plenty of warning...

Congrats, The 4* 60 is the kit I have been using for several years to teach building with, fantastic kit. The plane flys great with any good standard Ball Bearing servo but as mentioned, servos are with us for a long time from model to model so I tell students to buy the best they can afford. You don't need super strong digitals at this time but it never hurts to have some on hand in the future. I use and buy Hitecs myself but any of the big three, Futaba, JR or Futaba all work well. You can go to Servo City and look at the different Futaba and Hitec servos to read up on them and get some prices. Good luck with your plane.

Way back when....... we used to fly the old pattern plane rocket ships on "standard" servos. I do not remember the exact specs but I would guess they were 30 oz and below????? Those servos did OK. Now with that said, I agree with the above to buy the best you can afford. You can cheap out on the throttle servo but the elevator and aileron at least should be a "good" one.
