Same as everyone else I would suspect.

Gorilla Glue if you have all night so it can dry.

Epoxy if your in a hurry.

Super Glue to tighten one up if necessary.

CA = Super Glue

Its a judgement call, in all hinging applications. If you have one that is loose, CA is a fast and easy fix. But if you need to replace or have a surface all ready off then don't use CA.

I have a single hinge loose on the Rudder of my 89 Slick have tried getting CA in there but it has done no good. Plane on replacing all the Hinges this Winter. Think it's safe with all the hinges being solid except for one side of one?

You could always pin it.

Thin CA in a syringe can get to any hinge pretty much. I have used insulin syringes that we had for our cat to get to hard to CA places.

Four minutes into the flight, I went to do a wall and my tail snapped off and separated from the fuse right behind the canopy. The tail fell where it broke off, but the fuse and wing kept flying on for a few hundred more yards. I still had throttle and aileron control, but it didn't mean much. I crashed into a fence and the ground, but thankfully it stayed out of the little pond right next to us. Plane was trashed, the DLE had a bent crank and the exhausts got ripped up, the power expander is trashed and a few of the spektrum satellites had their cables or antennas ripped. Thankfully all of the servos are fine as are the various other parts, so time to start shopping around for a new 100cc plane. Slick and DA 120 maybe???

After the crash, I didn't feel like flying much, so I put up my DJI Hexa and shot some aerial video of some of the other guys, which was a nice distraction.

Sorry to hear about this Matt.....I too saw it before the crash, and it was a nice plane.....But, you were doing a really nice job with the 70" Slick before that!!

I've drilled a small hole into the wood to "intercept" the hinge pin that's loose....then wicked a little thin CA down that "hole" that reaches to the loose pin....the hole should "intercept" the loose hinge pin about halfway along the wood it's supposed to be bonded into...so that the CA that wicks in will travel both ways from your "injection" point. You can do one side....flip it and repeat. We did all of the elevator hinges once on Wamsy's 72.....it should be easier on an 89 since the parts are bigger.

Before you start, you may want to "oil" the hinge at it's pivot point to reduce the chance of CA'ing the hinge solid where you don't want to.....
