Great Planes Pro CA Glue Thin
I wonder if anyone has ever used that CA glue? the : Great Planes Pro CA Glue Thin.
Im doing a build for a 3DHS 41' Edge 540 and was looking for some good CA Glue.
Will this glue do the trick?
Any other Glue you recommend?
I saw in the building video of 3DHS, that they use the Mercury brand, but, at my local hobbyshop, 1 bottle of 1oz of mercury is 15$ + tax.... and i think its overpriced... as usual.
Thank you all for your response in advance,

FWIW my experience with the GP PRO CA has been horrible. Worst glue I have used. It will probably work though.
Not long ago an online place sent me some Pro CA when I ordered Med Zap. I called them and they told me they were out of Zap so they substituted the Med Pro. I told them from past experience that I didn't want it. They said they heard that a lot, and they ended up sending me Zap a few weeks later no charge when their order came in. They didn't want me to return the Pro. I tried using it; it didn't really set up well, and within a week after opening it had started to gell over....just like I remembered.
I prefer ZAP, but use Mercury and Bob Smith CAs (store brand) as a second choice.
Yea, $15 for one once is a bit over priced IMO, but still better than free Pro

I've been using Mercury for years. It's good stuff.
And I see GH now also carries Bob Smith CA ($9.99 for 2oz thin). I haven't used it myself, but it seems to have a good reputation.

Thanks a lot for those quick replys guys! yeah, i hate my LHS. (previous experience)
Ill go at GH to get the Mercury or Bob Smith CA!
I dont want a not so good glue, Thanks for letting me know rcav8r2 !!! I wont buy the Great Plane for sure!
I need Medium CA (for all around the plane, elevator, rudder etc...) and Thin CA (for hinges).
I did get some 5min epoxy (gorilla) ( i beleive is for the landing gear and other place...as per the video) but 3DHS is saying 30 min epoxy. Is that a big deal?? is it less strong since its 5min?
Thanks for all the replys guys!
