Felt a little dizzy inhaling the toluene fumes from the Welder Glue I used to assemble the Twisted Hobbys Vector earlier this week. It reminded me of the Testors Glue I used when I was a kid. After that first time using Welder Glue, I now only use it outside or in a larger room with open windows. I built my first EPP hinges with Welder Glue this week, and they are pretty amazing in their durability and flexibility.

I added a Hyperion Servo Rate Adjuster to my Fun Cub. One of the channels wasn't working, so I had to attach the Y extension to the channel that was working. The pot was also a little bit difficult to access underneath the cut shrinkwrap. The flaps do look a lot cooler now that they're slowed down, and they should help mitigate the ballooning effect when I initiate them.
