I used it for one peg install. I don't like how the peg flexes when I throw. Maybe I did it wrong, though

Of course they can't; they're analog. D60s are noted for being very hard to kill - which is good for a beginner. I doubt he needs (or even has) the kind of finesse digital servos allow.

As you said, the D47 or its cheap clones like these, are pretty good for rudder and elevator.

The PowerHD servo is cheap enough ($4 each!) that you can just bring a couple with you and replace them right on the field if you have a hard landing. I've only broken two in the last year or so, and only due to pilot error. I would not be surprised if they're from the same factory as the Dymond version. Again, not a digital servo, but not that many people really need them. If your linkages are properly designed, you can get perfectly good service from D47s and D60s.

Loctite makes a glue very similar to these products http://t.homedepot.com/p/Loctite-4g-...589/202020461/
I have had very little experience with the product but at less the $5.00 a bottle plan to do some experimenting with it.
Right now I am doing a test with Goop and another glue for holding power (no problem with the Goop) I wanted to see how hard it is to remove a servo after setup.
The other is a Locktite product that I have used for years in foamie power ships http://t.homedepot.com/p/Loctite-1-f...694/202487188/ this product has worked very good for servo placement but then these are pocket installs, not in the open as in the Blaster or Snipe. Have used to install nose weight and other items.
This product is not acceptable for our use, it popped right off. I am thinking it needs a porous surface to work.
Just info
