Measurements are metric and I usually find the nylon metric bolts in the Ace hardware stores.

Hope this helps.

Indeed, that is nice. Where did you get the decals/vinyl?

I used those self-adhesive Trim Monokote strips that HobbyTown sells for $3 -- cut and applied to taste.

It remains to be seen whether or not it will stay put. I don't think this stuff is typically used on EPO. Sure seems just fine -- and looks nice -- for now, though!

Yes, I have also used the MonoKote trim on foam as well. I found that if I cleaned well the surface the trim will stick generally well. On a few models, I did use some ~600 grit sandpaper only where I put the trim. I sand just enough to break the surface sheen of the foam.

Can someone please inform me on how this plane disasembles? Can I put it back in the box it came in for transport, or is the v tail glued in? I'm leaning more toward the Advance version of the Raptor 2000 because im switching my fleet over to glass\balsa\monokote, but at the same time the dynamic-s\blaze looks to be a little bit more durable compared to the raptor and if it breaks down easier then i may choose it. Please give me a little insite on the blaze\dynamic- s so I can make a better decision.

Thanks,
Troy

It all screws together. The box is made so that you could use it for transport. Not great, but good enough.

Use a covering iron on medium setting and go over the tape a couple times. I do that on my foamies and haven't had any problems.

Not easily. I do use the box to transport it. I modified the box for the V tail and I leave the wing sections connected together and I cut a slot into the box to carry them. The ends of the wings are fragile so you have to be careful transporting them. I have got to the stage now I do not take it to the club. It sits (hangs) in my hanger already to go and I only fly it at home.

Yeah, the V-tail is a bit of a nusiance to take off and put back on. Wings, no real problem though.
