Does Easystar Elevator Section Need to be Glued on?

As I was putting my easystar together, I noticed that the Elevator section came with a ready to stick on surface, but after sticking it on the base of the fuselage, it just doesn't have a solid feeling of being stuck to the fuselage. Was wondering what others may have done when putting their kit together? Was thinking of putting some glue there to ensure that the part doesn't separate during flight. Any tips to what others may have done would be highly appreciated.

Check the instructions

Instruction 6, in my manual says to make sure everything is lined up straight & true, and then to glue it with Cyanoacrylate cement. They recommend using an accelerator with the cya. Good luck with your EZ*!
