The easiest and fastest way to do this is to use medium CA. Using Welders for this is a pain in the butt. Medium CA and kicker is the way to go.

Put a drop of medium CA in the facotry hole and push the guide in. Then make sure it is lined up and hit it with kicker. Move on to the next guide and repeat.

Start at the control surface end and work back to the servo one at a time.

I find this way very easy and produces excellent results. Nice alignment and to glue on the CF rod.

Yeah I did it this way on the lite build and it was super easy. All my previous builds I had switched to a thicker rod and some bigger plastic guides because the wood looked like a pain.

It was easier than I thought it would be with the CA/Kicker.
