Below is a list of equipment to be used, brands, part or model numbers where available, the quantity and weight.

Update - Recommended Servos:

For the Allure you want servos of the following specs: Elevators 4-5kg torque, Ailerons 8-10kg torque and on the Rudder you want 10-16kg torque. Remember that for F3A you want servos with great accuracy and centering abilities. Buy the best servos you can afford....

We are now agents for MKS Servos. For the Allure we suggest DS9960A+ for elevators and BLS950 on Rudder and Ailerons. Another choice would be HV747 on Ailerons and Elevators with a HBL575SL or HV1220 on the rudder.

For Futaba users, Bryan Hebert suggests the following: EP BLS173 on elevators, BLS171 on ailerons and rudder. GP BLS173 on elevators, BLS272 on ailerons and rudder.

For JR users, Dave Lockart suggests the following: MP31S on elevators, MP91S on ailerons and MPH83T on rudder.

There are probably many other suitable servos in both brand and type. The ones suggested above are only a guide. As you can see in the table below I'm actually using different servos again in my Allure but will soon be using MKS.
