Question
Foam Glue

Hello all, I don't post here often cause i'm 98% helis but I have a question about my plane. I have a Splendor and one of the wing tabs broke off so i'm having to make a replacement. I'm going to be gluing carbon and plastic into the foam. Would it be better to use foam glue or 5min epoxy?

Thanks for any help!

On the Splendor wing tabs I've had great success using "BSI" 15-minute epoxy by Bob Smith Industries (should be available at your nearest hobby shop). I've tried Foam Tac and the Harbor Freight 5-minute epoxies but have found that the BSI epoxy works much better for doing a tab rebuild. Take care, r2crash.

Yes, I would use epoxy for that job.
