Thanks guys, i Have the aerostar 45A Esc from HK , i was hoping to use.

Yes it is a fine line but even Feda recommends regular CA and less is more.
Just a drop or two on both ends top and bottom applied with a fine Z end nozzle.
But I still pin them as I do put the plane thru torture moves, 300+ flights and no problems whatsoever.

I did manage to get the Aileron back together and the wings look pretty good. Used gorilla glue and epoxy for the big pieces, CA'd the hinges back together. For added insurance I bought 3M hinge tape and am adding that to the hinges tonight. While I am at it I will get the rudder and elevator surfaces with the tape. Should be close to good as new. Will see Sunday depending on the weather and if HK gets my servos to me or not.

Before and after pictures below..

Keep em flying,
Kevin
