Default Need Help with RC Powers Extra 300

I just cut out an RC Powers Extra 300 using Lowes 1/2" blue core foam. I need help with deciding on the right motor, ESC, Battery and Prop. My biggest question is I want to use 03 servos (because I have 3 9gram servos lying around), so how do you do ailerons with only one servo on this plane, considering you can't put one on the center line due to the profile?

Actually you can put one on the center line, you just cut a nice neat little hole for it dead center just large enough for the servo to clear with it mounted on the top "plate" of the fuselage. The run your push rods off of that to each aileron. I added a simple word doc with a very simple drawing on what I mean. I'm sorry I don't have a handy picture of one of my planes to show you. Hope this helps. The red block is where you would cut the hole for the one servo. The servo then would be sitting on top of the wing in the center.

A pre-flight check is better than a post crash analysis
