What is your AUW now that it is built?
Welders is contact cement. After 5 minutes it is semi tacky and will be adjustable if you put on a thick coat. After 10 minutes it is instant bond.

Yes, I recommend centering all the servos and installing the servo arms prior to installing them. I always do it after so I do not have to fiddle with my transmitter while I still have sticky fingers and glue all over the bench. I'm building these things fast to get the build threads up before everyone gets theirs. If I had more time I would do it your way.

I haven't weighed the production model but it is 6.XX oz depending..
