Micro servos or STD in a foam wing

Ok i am trying to decide, should I get some hitec hs-81's for my new XE2 or just stick with my std servos that I have plenty of? is the flight characteristics of the micro's worth the extra $40. will it fly noticably different with the smaller servos vrs the std servo's, and if I go std should I use the jr 537 or a lighter non BB servo? I have both BB's and non BB std servos but no micros on hand? I will be using my std JR RX for sure......

Servos are installed laying on their side, embedded in the foam of the wing. The micro servos are narrower than std servos, so it depends on how thick the wing is. I use the HS-81MGs. The metal gear servos are recommended, especially if you plan to do combat.
