Long story short questions ... should you use CA as stated by Multiplex and should it be with Kicker? Do you spray kicker on the (say) the motor mounts and then put the CA on the fuse or ??? What is the best way to use this stuff if you have to use it ...
remember I can't fail at this because she knows how much the FC cost!
The FunCub or any Multiplex model (AFAIK) will not be reduced to tiny bits of foam in a prang.....
Mine hit the pavement, nose first directly on the spinner and this is the result:
Here's a link to the post with the video...
...2 pieces.....2 big pieces! A little torquing of the crumpled edges, some regular Medium CA
and reinforced with 3/4 oz. fiberglass cloth/CA and it is as good as new. BTW, I never used any kicker for the major assemblies.....only on some small parts I wanted to cure quickly. The only concern I had during building was gluing the fuselage sides together.....thought it might take too long and the glue would dry before I was ready....had my flying buddy (he's the one that pranged the FC...!!) help me spread it, we slapped it together and he held it while I adjusted any misalignment...mostly in the air intake on the cowl. We wrapped it with elastics and let it set for awhile.
And, I've been out of R/C for quite a while until 4 years ago.....who had ever heard of an electric helicopter!!! Boy, did I get hooked again....now into FPV and the FunCub is my first platform....it is outstanding for the many roles we might assign to it....
