Its glue. He mentioned he mops it on with his finger.
Its that glue that you get with some of the LX foam models that's not a 2 part epoxy.

Works great but its more popular in Europe, less common in the west.

That would be nice. There is a forum for build andfinish materials for models in general and there didn't seem to be an equivolent a year ago.

UHU is the brand/manfctr and you see their glue sticks and other basic stuff but the have a wide line up like 3M orr Dupont. So limited selection and suppliers.

UHU por in the USA

UHU por is by far the best foam adhesive that I've used so far. It's the only glue that I use on the UM foamies. It is also known in the 'States as 'UHU Creative'.

Hobby Lobby carries it: http://www.hobby-lobby.com/uhu_glue_409_ctg.htm

So does A Main: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...por-Glue-14-oz

Cool... I just bought phoenix 4 because it has some Blade heli's and I couldn't find a proper one in RealFlight.

I just did a few test flights with the mcpx in phoenix and it behaves way more like the nano than any chopper I've tried in RealFlight.

Finally a sim where I can do some proper testing. In RF I could easily do 3D and keep the chopper stable. I can clearly see the difference with the mcpx in phoenix. Love it! It will save me a lot of horrible crashes (or so I hope )

Not to worry. I use Shoe Goo on all my Blade heli canopies and it has never harmed a canopy.

I love RCG. Others are looking for UHU or its equal. State side its from $14-$8 for a 40mm/1.4oz tube.

The UHU Por source thread was started and apparently HK has the equal for $3 for a 100ml tube Clear Foam glue.
There still doesn't seem to be an equivolent product here. Anything similar eats foam.

Took out the spindle

And straightened as best I could . Tightened it up and backed off a good half turn again . Seems to have helped the tbe for sure havin a bit off play in the spindle.

What about the blades. Mine where very loose put of the box very tempted to tightens them up til the point they won't drop when I hold heli on its side and point them out vertical. That's how I set my mimi Titan blades. So they just about hold up there own weight

I also use shoe goo on the maingear, collar and motor. Works very well so far.
