Be careful using regular THIN CA on this plane guys. What 3D Hobby Shop doesn't tell you is that the inner foam WILL GET EATEN up by regular CA's AND Welders glue. The flat pieces like the rudder/elevator/stab/sfgs are made with 2 outside layers of EPP and an inside layer that doesn't play well. Also, the interior foam in the ailerons will get eaten as well, so I'd recommend medium CA when installing the aileron control horns. Thin wicks down in and just eats the inside of the aileron, so be careful. I'm pretty sure it's the same with the interior foam in the wings as well. I went with standard 2-part epoxy when my wing broke in half just to be safe and it's holding up like new. I'm not sure if Welders glue will eat the interior foam in the wings & ailerons, but I know it will eat the middle layer of the tail feathers for sure.
I haven't had any problems with the plane because of this, and I did build mine per the manual, but I think it should be known so that people don't accidentally do harm by using too much glue in the wrong planes, especially on repair work. It always sucks trying to glue two things back together only to watch it melt instead
I'd hate to be without this plane for too long. It's too much fun
