Your flying style, the type of plane, and where you intend to go with it (sport, competition etc) all will have a big bearing on servo choices, along with airplane type, and power choices.
IMO, once you get to the 50cc airplane class, the power choice becomes harder.
Gas offers good flight times, can be 100% dependable when set up properly. The down side is vibration that will cause fatigue in the airframe, your servos work a little harder, and the inevitable cleanup. Tuning is critical for best performance. For some, just handling fuel is a problem.
Electric eliminates some of the worries, but bring on its won set of things to resolve. Flight times are certainly shorter, the power is definitely there, flying times and power use has to be carefully monitored. As batteries become better ( almost a daily occurance it seems now) it becomes vital to match components carefully. A prop too big will overheat components very quickly, and could let "the magic smoke"
I fly only electric by choice, up to 50cc size, you have to make the choice based on what your comfortable with. flytwice
