Foam Tac is way better than Welders, in my opinion at least. It remains more flexible when dry which is definitely a preferred value for EPP. I think it may also have not just an equivalent bond strength, but a better bond strength than Welders.

I have no UHU experience.

Great! I think Foamtac is clear, which would make it nice to use also.

I've had my Extra Slick for less than a week. I think I've sold at least 2 more - Its really easy, all you have to do is let someone fly it

As long as you do it right, there doesn't look like there is any glue joints, just one put together piece of foam... I mean airplane.

Beacon"s Foam-Tac is all I use for EPP planes anymore, I like it much better than Welders

I'm going to have to pick some up. Just finished my Slick with Welders. Works much better when used properly. On my Yak I didn't like the Welders, but on my slick I coated the 2 adjoining pieces and let them sit before rejoining them, rock solid. I just wish I could keep the stuff off my fingers.

Get some latex gloves next time you go to Lowes. Swap them out every few glue joints and you will keep glue off the airplane where you don't want it and off your fingers. I love them!
