Again not arguing all good points but expanding glue in areas that need accuracy is not my first choice.

Now, if you have had good luck with this glue please by all means continue to use it. Its just not my first choice over epoxy in critical areas.
LDM,
So what glue would you use in my situation? So you don't have to go back to read, I ripped the plastic landing gear mount (the part that is actually connected to the wheel well) out of the wing. It came out cleanly as there was barely any glue holding it in from the factory. I have some Foam-Tac arriving from MotionRC tomorrow, so I can use that, GG or Epoxy.

I dunno, when one of mine was loose I liberally applied the epoxy after I scuffed up the plastic and cleaned/sliced/roughed up the foam with perfect results to date.

I also learned to land properly...

Welders doesn't expand. Just be sure that whatever it's used on will never need to come apart again. Because it won't.

No More Kits Available

After spending several hours adding modifications to my 1700 Corsair, on my third flight yesterday just one minute or so into a great flight, I heard a loud pop and watched in dismay a prop blade fly off resulting in the motor searing off the mount and falling to the ground and then the plane nose dive to the ground. Total loss.

I found out that Motion and Diamond Hobby are no longer offering the kit version of any plane. The response from Motion was that their kits do not sell and take up valuable space so they will no longer carry them.

I hope to rebuild with parts to fly another day.

All control surfaces are now digital. Ail, Ele, Rud, Fla. Even the gear doors are digital.

FMS is making the change over on all their planes to digital servos.
