I will start building one and take some pics for you of the assembly process. I just ordered the plans, but I should be able to scale the drawing from the magazine and build from that.

servos http://www.headsuphobby.com/Towerpro-14g-MG90D-Digital-Metal-Gear-Sub-Micro-Servo_p_1174.html

All the servos you mentioned are too small. Small servos with those small nylon gears are problematic and strip with 049 engines. When this plane was original designed it probably used standard size servos which were 35 gram +

You will have to ask one of the Spektrum guys on the battery I believe they usually use 6 volt receiver batteries. If I recall correctly some have had issues with the 4.8V batteries getting low and causing the receiver to reboot.

750 mah is what I typically use. A little more or less won't hurt.

Yes the servos come with horns and I usually use what I have laying around for control rods. Typically 1/16 rod or 2-56. Something like this http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXD855&P=SMhttp://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXD855&P=SM 1/2a control horns. 1/2a aileron linkage. Check out Tower Hobbies and look at this page. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0091p?&P=SM&C=QFA&V=DUBhttp://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0091p?&P=SM&C=QFA&V=DUB. Dubro or Sullivan both make pushrods, control horns, and aileron linkages for 1/2A. It's not overly critical, you just don't want it to light so it flexes without a bunch of support.

Yes I am using 049.  I am actually thinking about buying a couple of the Black Lynx engines from Ex-Models and using 1 oz. tanks and throttles.
