Radio gear recommendation for Silent Dream 2.5?

Hi there, I just ordered a Silent Dream 2.5 and while I am waiting for it to arrive I was wondering about the ideal radio setup (it will be my first glider of this type). I hesitate between Hitec HS81 (cheaper) or HS85 for the wings + elevator & rudder. How about the airbrakes, does it need to be smaller?

BTW, is there rudder control on the 2.5m (vs. the 2.2)?

I ordered a brushless Mega 20/4 which happens to be the same technology as the now popular Jeti Phasor motors (actually built by Mega).

Hi Mana, I fly the FVK Silent Dream 2.2 and 2.5 electric gliders, and use Hitec HS 81 MG servos all round and can fully recommend, I find the metal geared 81,s are a better bet, wont strip when the going gets tough. Mike.
PS. the 2.5 Silent Dream is usually Vee Tail,
which has Rud. and Ele. control.
