Question
How Safe Is A 20 Year Old Aircraft

I have a 20 year old Eagle II I have had stored in my basement that I flew with a Royal .46 back in the early 90's. The motor and tank are gone but the servos are still installed. I had thought about converting it to electric.

My biggest concern is the 20 year old glue joints. It was done primarily with CA and I used the wicking type CA hinges. This plane will weigh about 5 lbs. and I am concerned about it coming apart in mid air and maybe hurting someone.

Any comments would be appreciated.
