glue for brass horn (Eraser Extreme)

hello,
installing a brass horn on flaps on a 3m glass sailplane flaps. I've been using 30m epoxy to install and glue horns into place but wondering if that's the best glue. I was thinking maybe a glue with a little flex might be better suited. Maybe I'm making a big deal about nothing?

I've used 30 min epoxy for planes, no problems.

Just remember the longer the cure take's the stronger the epoxy is.

Not all epoxy is created equal. the standard 30 min hobby epoxy has some flex and should be OK. For more strength add some milled fiberglass or cotton flox.

I'd normally use JB Weld for a job like that.
