I've used five different glues, to good effect.

In order of building preference, they are:
-- White Gorilla Glue (foams into gaps, sands really well, thin-spread on a surface to form a strong skin)
-- 3M 77 spray adhesive (for laminating layers into blocks, for carving),
-- Beacon's Foam-tac
-- Foam-safe CA (for quick repairs)
-- 5- and 15-minute epoxies

I've also used Titebond and Elmer's wood glue. They worked well but dried hard and yellow.

Thanks

I'm sure ready to take my building to that next level. DT is fine but I will not miss the waviness.

Foam tac will raise their price to almost tripple of what they were charging so they have priced their self out of my market . Most every one iam talking to is buying the old stuff by the boxes so they won't have to pay their new prices comming up. I have never tried neither the old foam tac or the new formula but it looks like gorrilla glue and i also use elmers rubber cement is it for me . joe

Description: I was inspired to design and build my own versions of the FK10 after purchasing one from Hobbyking and deciding it had too many issues to ever be a fun flying plane.

The first version was a profile 36" made from MPF. I decided against the flying elevator, so these have a conventional tail set-up.

The second version is a full fuse 36".

Of the 2, I like the profile the most as it is quite a bit lighter. It doesn't like wind more than 5 mph, but other than that it is a blast to fly. It takes off in just a few feet and lands nicely with a bit of power on. What a sight it is to see this plane on a slow fly-by, and from a distance all those wings look very impressive Suprising to me was that it does great harriers.
