Door Actuator hole question

Okay, I see on Dave's tutorial a spot for the door actuators to be cut out of the 2nd ring, but there isn't really a spot for that marked on the plans.

Is this something I need to stress over?  I'm to the point of gluing the 2nd ring on, and if I need to cut out the actuator hole, I'd like to know before I get much further in the build.

its not real critical but should cut servo holes before mounting the second ring, much easier now then after frame is built

Is there a general guideline for the hole dimensions?  I see a basic design on the tutorial, but the template (page 3 for those following in the pdf's) really doesn't have a place for it.  Would I need the actuators already to know what size/shape hole to cut?

a standard servo is 1.600X0.800 inches
