HITEC HS-82MG, Personally I wouldn't put $5.00 servos on a plane I fly several miles away with $700 of equipment onboard.

Personally I wouldn't put 2.85kg servos on a 2m Plane which can go 160km/h either ...

you bought the wrong plane if you plan on flying it at 160km. hr.

I think it was really designed as a UAV / FPV Plane. Plenty of better sport flying wings. But hey. to each his own.

If you are planning on flying it this way, then you are probably right, better of with larger servos.

Scorpions aren't cheap either. I'm using Scorpion SII-3028-1110Kv (V2).
It's rated for 60A continuous (they're under-rated and can burst well above that) which seems
a good match for my 3S setup with APC 12x8.5 folding prop (obtained prop/hub/spinner
from http://rcdude.com ) which pulls about 65A at full throttle (675-775 Watts)
The Hackers A30-10l v2 and 10xl v2 are rated much lower but people regularly beat the hell
out of em on Zephyrs so they seem to be well proven.
