What is the BEST MICRO servo (for a JET)

I am building a 80cm / 1 kg Electric JET (see: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=382141 )

Now, I need to find 2 micro servos ( 10 grammes max) for this baby ! It has NO ailerons, only tailrons !

I have been told that I need DIGITAL servos for accuracy, but, in the 10 grammes range, I have found so far only the JR/Graupner DS 281.

Looking at its more carefully, I find its specs not very exciting :
- very SLOW (0,16 sec compared to 0,09 for GWS HP bb)
- No metalic gears

...my "non digital" GWS Naro HP looks better (0,09 !! almost 2 time faster)

So, w

- hat is the BEST and FASTEST micro servo ?
- Do I really need a digital one for accuracy (important for a Jet !! )

the 281 is a very high quality servo. I've found my 241's to be the most precise micro servo, compared to all of hitecs offering, bluebirds.. and other companies. may no tbe the fastest, but is very accurate.
