Best glue for horizontal stab?
Quick question -
I am building my first giant scale (25% Cub) and was wondering what everyone uses for glue on their stabilizer's?
I have used clear tacky glue forever on my smaller planes and never had an issue. Would this clear (elmers style) glue be ok for my giant scale?

30 minute epoxy!!!
The stabalizer takes a beating and is under high amounts of stress. The slower curing epoxy alows for deeper penitration into the mounting surface. This will insure a safe flight and that stab stays on the fuse!

Yes on the 30 min epoxy for reasons listed above plus if needing to remove the stab for repairs... heat gun on the epoxy will soften it and often allow removal.
For additional strength, make pin holes to act like nails.
