.Thirty minutes ago I put dabs of FT on two pieces of $tree, spread it out to cover both surfaces and pressed them together. I know that is not how the directions say to use it as I didn't let it air dry. But you know what, the $tree is now mushy. Makes me wonder if it was really Welders that was used or that the kid didn't read the directions well enough. I'll contact him this evening.
If you don't use a product according to MFG instructions you have no argument.....

Who made an argument. I give up on this, I have done just fine with other products.

Wow!! So that's what they mean when they say "Sticking the Landing"
Holy Cow, BTW you didn't happen to glue the Mini Mako to the side of the building with Foam-Tac did you??? (I know shameless plug) couldn't help myself.
All kidding aside awesome planes and awesome flying, and you are entered in the monthly contest.

This comes from the FoamTac Site (I don't see any difference in what the reps said vs the instructions that are on the web)

http://www.foam-tac.com/home.aspx

Helpful Hints / Directions
HELPFUL HINTS
Less is more! Apply a thin line of Foam-Tac to surfaces; add more only if needed.
Foam-Tac's bond "welds" foam together for making invisible butt-joints & seams. Once cured, bond is stronger than the foam itself.
Great for reattaching broken ailerons.
Won't glue fingers together - not a cyanoacrylate.
Never leaves any residue on surfaces.



DIRECTIONS
All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of dust and grease.
Remove white cap & save for storage. Screw on applicator tip & snip.
Apply a thin layer of glue to each side of materials to be joined.
Wait a few seconds and then firmly press parts together and immediately separate for 4-5 seconds more. Rejoin parts, firmly pressing surfaces together for a permanent bond.
Allow to dry for 20-30 minutes for a strong bond with a full cure within 24 hours or less.
ALWAYS REPLACE THE FLAT WHITE CAP AFTER EACH USE TO KEEP GLUE FROM THICKENING

I have three tubes of the original Foam Tac and a partial left. The instructions on the card say to "put Foam Tac on both pieces and allow to air dry for 10 -20 minutes then join together." I ended up with a misaligned fuselage because their was no adjustment time and the parts stuck immediately and would not pull apart. I posted this a page or two back and got a reply that you don't need to let it set 10 - 20. Then why is it in the instructions on the card? That question was not answered. I like Foam Tac and will follow the revised instructions. It just would have nice to have had better instructions from the start. I am guessing that the first batch sold to Radical RC that has the new formula but on the old purple card still has the 10 - 20 minute instructions also.

'Taint what is on the card of the Foam-Tac I bought. Looking at it right here in my hot little hand.

I am not saying it is not the best thing since sliced bread. I do;t know that, as I have yet to use it. Just no need to be obnoxious toward those who are using it off-card...since folks who claim to be from the manuf are also suggesting it be used in a means outside that which is prescribed on the material that comes with the product.

Another question on usage:

How about joining/laminating sheets of FFF/blucor for, say, a KFm airfoil? Is it better than Gorilla glue for that, which foams up and fills voids?

Almost every glue i use has different ways to be used and most are not whats printed on the bottle . I use elmers Rubber cement like the foam tac instruction you posted . Sometimes i put GG in a container with water and let it foam before applying . It can be hard to write all the ways to use something on a little package . Experimenting with scraps is something we should all learn and remember to do .
