Help finding information on a Kangke profile plane and servos

I bought this little profile plane at a swap meet for $35 but I can't find anything on the internet about it. On the wing it says Kangke Model Super Kraft. I checked the Kangke website and found nothing. The wing span is 36" and the length is 32". It also has some gray micro servos with S100 on them but no brand. Does anyone know anything about this plane or these servos? I am trying to figure out what motor I need for this thing.

Looks like a good candidate for a Hacker A20-20L or an Eflite Park 450. No idea what it is, though.

I was thinking this plane would need a park 400 or 450 size motor. It looks like it is going to weigh 19.5 oz. without the motor and prop. The previous owner does have 1 oz. of weight stuck to the nose of the plane so if I include that then I am looking at 20.5 oz. without motor and prop.

I have a hobby wing 30 amp ESC I will be using on this plane. A Hitec minima 6E receiver and I already have a 3 cell 1300 mAh battery for it. I am not real familiar with electric stuff yet, still learning. Most of my planes are glow engines. I bought this because It looks like it will be fun to fly, I had everything for it other than a motor, and it was cheap.

Here is a picture of the servos I mentioned in the earlier post. They have S100 on them but no manufacturer. Has anyone ever seen these?

I was looking the plane over today and the aileron servo doesn't look correct to me. It doesn't look like it really fits the way it is installed. There is also limited travel on the ailerons. I don't know what the throws should be for this plane but I don't think it will have much. It appears the previous owner just glued it in the servos. I would have thought that there should have been two aileron servos instead of one, but I am not sure how they would mount. Does anyone have any idea how this should have been setup? This is one reason I am hoping someone can help identify this model so I might be able to find a manual for it. Then I could see the recommended servo installation and find out what the throws should be set at.

Looks like those servos are the ones FMA used to make.

I can tell you one thing from the pics....those servo horns are mounted incorrectly....the holes in the horn should line up with with the hinge gap to get equal throw in both directions...and you're right that that servo is mounted in the wrong spot....wish I could tell you where the right spot was but that plane is a mystery to me .

I am still searching for information about this plane. I am in hopes someone will be able to identify it for me so I might be able to get some setup info about it. Cgva8r thanks for the help on the servos I hadn't heard of FMA but I did find some information on Servo City about them. Chuck thanks for the motor recommendation, I was thinking a park 450 would be about right also. I am leaning toward a GForce E450 motor which is made by Leopard and is about 1/2 the price of a Eflite park 450. I also have a Hobbywing 30amp ESC in stock that I will use on this plane as well.
