Being computer savy is good but having two computers to work with can help.

One to follow the thread, one to have "I'll take # X" ready to post.

Gorilla Glue

Response to Question I asked GG about the White Glue


Gorilla Glue Dries White gains strength faster and is ultimately the same strength when fully cured as the original Gorilla Glue (brown). When we developed the dries white formula, we did a lot of testing to ensure that we maintained the strength properties of the glue - it is just a bit faster when it cures. With both formula’s, there is no strength in the foam that squeezes out. The white foam is softer than the original squeeze out. There is no strength in this foam for either glue. Gorilla Glue is meant to be used between two tight fitting pieces; so tight that the glue expands into the pores of the substrates and the glue line is basically invisible. This is what makes the bond so strong. It cannot be used as a filler or a sealer. It will fill any gaps or voids but it only does this cosmetically and not structurally since there is no strength in the foam.Gorilla Glue and Gorilla Glue Dries White formulas will work on non-porous surfaces, such as metals or glass, but we do recommend lightly scratching up the non-porous surfaces first with some sand paper where the glue will be. This will give a texture to the surface and it gives the glue something to hold on to.

Interesting. From my experience with Robart hinges as well as the flat ones, I haven't ever had "tight" fit between the hinge and balsa. Seems like Gorilla Glue may not be a good choice since the foam has no structural strength.

Yeah, not so sure after speaking with them after they responded to me email, basicly said if it's filling any kind of voic or space there is no strength to it.

If there's space, there's foam, if there is foam, there is no strength...t'is why I have always stuck (pun intended) with epoxy...

But no failure for me in several years(since getting into RC). I have popped a couple loose when I touched the rudder a bit hard. In that case almost better to yank it out instead of half the rudder balsa.

But that said....I may go back to epoxy because it less messy. And on one recent plane I had the foam push out the horn a bit. Not fun. and I use no extra moisture, that only creates more foam. I am near the coast so humidity is usually pretty high anyway.

Well no strength is clearly an overstatement. There is obviously some strength, just not nearly as much as with no foam. The only question is is it strong enough?

you mean people actually have an opinion about which radios, servos, glue, etc are the best?
