Question Alternative setup with Align servos?

I would like to ask for some helpfull thoughts about this. I sold Trex 250DFC tired of repairing the tail etc, have bought Fireball kit and thinking about using those DS416M servos with some decent setup for mild 3D flying im able... First problem are the servo arms, cause i can find just those white plastic thin arms, where im not sure mounting 2mm ball and be sure not to break in flight...looking weak for Fireball. Second im not sure if it is really necessary for my sport flying to buy 6S controler and batery packs..Ive read here some opinions, also waiting for reply from SAB, but THE KNOWLEDGE is here:-)
Thanks in advance!

For starters, I have a Fireball and have had a Trex 250.
I would not recommend DS416M's in Fireball. They won't last even in Trex250, I had a couple fail flying mild 3D only.

Also, Fireball is heavy and would benefit from 6S setup. Maybe it can just fly with 4S but it will be really lazy. OTOH 60A controller is overkill, probably 40A would be ok. For hovering even 20A is enough.

With your aim of using components I'll bet you would be better off with Oxy 3.

IIRC Align/Futaba/BK servos have same spline, so you could use SAB horns for Goblin 380.
