There's not a lot of aileron taper, no. And yes, they are counterbalanced. Takes a little load off of the servo and makes the roll rate very consistent. Again, if this plane were 9 lbs and 2200 watts like a more typical 70" class airplane it would be insanely quick, but the reduced cubic loading really damps things down. It is one of the most predictable airplanes I've ever flown and the roll rate is very manageable.

Again, I have been testing this on a prototype motor that is a slightly lower KV that will be happy with a 17x8 prop. But the clean airframe really takes advantage of power. You will have no problems with the Slick set-up in this plane. The only upgrade that might be needed is servos. It really needs some of the new breed of very high torque minis such as Savox SV-1260. I don't think 7245's will cut it unless you mechanically reduce the throws.
What about the Pro Modeler Mini servos? They seem to have great specks and only $60 a pop. I am planning on buying 4 to try out on a different 60'' 3D plane I just purchased. They are also a US company.

I have no idea but give them a shot. A friend tested one full sized Pro Modeler servo a long time ago and was very disappointed but the servo market changes so fast now that I wouldn't let that keep me from trying them. I'll bet they are good. Most of these companies are probably all using the same motors anyway. The rest comes down to the quality of construction and the design of the amps.

I would say you have a good chance of getting some very good servos from them but I have no idea until somebody tries them.

Edit: the language on their website annoys me though.

I've got these Promodeler minis on my 60 Slick v2, and they are fast and strong:
http://www.promodeler.com/DS160CLHV

They are looking to outlast the Savox 1250mg hv's on my 60 Edge EXP (those wore out and got loose pretty quickly, 80 flights and lots of final output play, now 120 flights and really loosey).

Promodeler doesn't throw me any perks - I just like the servos. Might get their micro servos for another plane.

The DS160's are 25T spline.
Found this, but you should check specs of the specific Futaba servo:
