just wondering what king of glue you guys used to glue the wings, ive used the glue that comes with the kit but i heard its not good enough, so i rip them off so i can slide a carbon fiber tube in the wings one to add some rigidity. There is too much video of this plane loosing a wing in mid air! please help me?
Thanks

i added a carbon fiber tube through the fuse that fit inside the one thats in the wings. Used epoxy to glue that in and then also epoxy on the surface areas where the wing connects to fuse. Can't remember if it was 15 or 30 min CA. If you check my blog page i have pics of how and what i did.

Epoxy doesn't eat foam. Have used it on all my planes. Always sand the paint where the two surfaces will meet, to ensure a secure bond to the foam.
