Can you tell us what brand adhesive are you using for construction with the depron? It looks like CA, but I thought that melts the foam? I have tried many "foam safe" products with mixed results.

Thanks

Super-Gold+™ Medium Foam Safe CA

+ kicker where required.

wipe down your parts being glue with Isopropyl Alcohol Many Depron parts have been treated in the milling process
and have a film on them sometimes make them hard to glue. so just wiping all your parts down to get any oils and film takes care of this.

foam safe works just fine!! but for those who use the kicker in a spray can will have the issue of the foam getting eatin away!!!! theres something in it that eats the foam so steer clear of the kicker in a spray can for foamies.

I finished the airframe and the kevlar thread works fantastic! I am very surprised at how stiff the structure is just using 3mil depron and the thread -
I am using SuperGold+, it is the best foam safe ca on depron I have ever used.
Waiting for linkage examples and component locations -

Thanks
