The wood looks nicer but breaks on nose overs. Less flex just sounds right to me. Also are you using super fast servos? I plan to use the hitec 24 dollar ones they recomend with one for the elevator. Im new to the pull pull rudder also but havent heard anything bad. Have you been flying for a long time, Ive been at it for about 5 years and this will be my first true 3d plane.
I've been flying for two years...I've been using Falcon or Xoar wood props. APC's are fine. I agree that the APC's survive ground strikes much better. I have Hitec 7245's running on a 2s 500mAh pack. they're pretty fast. Pull pull works fine. I've never had a problem with it. I had to tighten the cables, they tend to stretch after a while. You won't believe the response when on high rates. I would strongly recommend Hitec 5245mg servos. they're around $40 per servo, but with the high deflection of the control surfaces, the extra torque will prevent blow back on high speed/high G maneuvers.
