Wow, that 70" fantasy blue really looks nice! Is that a Turnigy 17x8 your trying on it? I picked up some 16,17,18x8 to try out from HC - amazing how cheap they are - so it will be good to hear how they work out for you.

Anyway to hold this thread until the building can actually commence(Ie they are at least in the country)?
I hate to have two threads with the same talk to keep up with and have to dig through several pages before we get to building?

Oh wait, I just made it worse...

Ben - can Gorrilla glue be thinned with something? Just did this on my 51" Slick and it ended up really thick. I think my bottle is just getting old.

Thanks,

Water thins it, but makes it foam more. I use it unthinned in many applications, and yes, a fresh bottle helps a lot.

I picked up some of the Gorilla glue that dries white and is "2x faster". Is it any different than the brown stuff besides the drying color?

Could of just been variations in the amount of water that I used - but I found the white stuff to not be as hard (stretchier, like packing foam and easy to tear) when I used it. I went back to the brown.

Pacer Hinge Glue is the way to go. Water clean up and stronger than epoxy or Gorilla. Pacer glue sticks to the hinge as it etches the hinge, where as the rest just make a socket and do not really stick as you think. They all work, I just go the easy and strongest way. And...no baby sitting the glue.

A unique product developed just for model and toy builders. Use it to glue Robart Hinge Points, and other flat style nylon hinges in balsa and foam. Use it to glue leading and trailing edges to foam cores, also great great for false rib caps on foam. Unlike ordinary resin (wood) glue that dries hard and brittle, Hinge Glue is formulated with added ingredients that cause it to dry semi-riggid. When gluing nylon parts, Hinge Glue actually micro etches the surface of the part to provide exceptional adhesion. It will dry in a few hours and will achieve full strength overnight. Handles in 30 minutes.

Do not use that stuff. Everything AllBread said is correct. It's marketed with the "Gorilla Glue" name by the same company for sales purposes but is not the same stuff like you would expect but just white and drying faster. I used it on my 51" Slick for a landing gear repair. I came in for a smooth slow landing on a fabric runway and my gear and plate came off easily. When we checked it out the white packing foam (marshmellow) consistency foam could very easily be peeled away. My friend commented that stuff should be used for arts and craft only.

I did redo the repair with the real original (yellow dark brown colored) gorilla glue and the gear has held up for another 50 flights.

Thanks Ryan and Joe! That is the information I was looking to hear. I'll try doing some test gluing with the two and see what my results are. Definitely don't want any soft stuff and have my hinges come out. So far I've been happy with the brown version.
