Ultra Micro T-28 Tail Repair

So I come home to find that the cleaners have somehow managed to break the tail off my plane! After having a mini heart attack, I realized that they managed to break it off in one piece with everything still intact (as far as I can see). I tested it and every part still moves. Do I need to glue or tape tape the tail in place or do I just slide it into the gap?

If it is the foam just use foam safe ca. (Super glue)

How much glue do I need? A thin line or enough so the glue is overflowing the sides of the channel where the tail goes?

Don't use too much CA. It doesn't cure well if you use too much. Put enough on to get it to stick and no more - hard to explain it past that. Sorry.

Have you ever worked with CA? (zap, etc.)? If not, you may want to practice on some foam from your plane box first. It's not hard to use, but you can use too much.

I have Gorilla Super Glue, Scotch Super Glue, and Krazy Glue. Is this the glue that you are talking about? I also have wood glue and white elmers glue if those would be any better

Go to a hobby store and ask for foam safe CA and kicker.
Krazy glue is (or always used to be) a CA glue as well - but I don't think it's foam safe.
