Top job Rob, very nicely done.

Looks like you'll have many happy flying hours.
I'm sure folks would like to see your Installation pics, radio gear specs etc.
With a good breeze onto that shore line and some warm air you'll be surfing the beach for ever!

I used FoamTac - very strong but not brittle and bonds these two different types of surfaces well together.

What parts did you glue with it?

I glued my wing joint, the elevator to the boom and the rudder. Almost every repair is also done with it. It's tough, slightly flexible and doesn't require an enormous amount. Just follow the directions to apply it on both parts to be joined, push them together and immediately draw them apart slightly for a few seconds, then re-join and set aside for a few hrs. Preferably 24hrs.

Also easy to use a thin bead for aileron joints and rudder/elevator joints too.

Good luck. Mike

The foamtac is amazing stuff. Perfect for aileron-foam-hinge repairs as well.

Anywhere the instructions called for epoxy or CA I used FoamTac. It was the only adhesive I used for the build. Have continued to use it for repairs as well. I layered a thin coat on the wing saddle too - and used it to glue the front pod cracks.

How long does it take to "set" so that you can put it down to dry?

Maybe 5 minutes or so. Make sure to glue one piece only. Press pieces together and then pull apart at least one time for a few seconds. It will set faster this way.
