From this is the one I'd go with:

I just got what I'm sure will be my "first" one. Simply awesome stuff, it's as if he figured out how to teleport the thing to me. It only took 41 hours for the plane to arrive at my house from the time I clicked the checkout button. I placed the order at 5:00pm Thursday afternoon, and it was on my doorstep by 10:00am this morning.

Now I do only live a 2 hour drive north of Santa Barbara, but still, I'm amazed it's already in my hands.

On the other hand I'm trying some 100% pure silicone aquarium adhesive. It say's not to fill with water for 48 hour's. The Aquarium that is. This is the same stuff that is recommended for silicone hinge's. So far I've just glued the tail on with it.

If your tail comes unglued, nothing will stick there properly after silicone's been there. IME. Prolly not a big deal with a Weasel but something to remember if you're using it on a hard plane.

Don't glue the tail on! It'll just get shredded when "the inevitable" happens and then it will be much more of a PITA to repair (and almost certainly result in extra weight behind the CG - not desirable).

Just MHO of course, but you can get spare tails from DF if you lose one, and they can be retained quite easily with a small rare earth magnet just behind the LE:

Nice call Steve. I just used a piece of tape on mine. LOL. Yours is much more clean.

Does anyone know if the Black Weasel is tougher than the EPO version? It is more forgiving when hitting down the the nose? Just had to glue the nose of mine back on because I was trying to show off too much. LOL.

I ll dare to say, after read over 80% of evo build thread, that its the other way around. EPO is stronger than EPA, correct me if I got it wrong

The original Weasel-Evos were made from white EPP. In the last year or so, the planes have been switched to EPO mainly for manufacturing reasons (too many QA issues with the EPP).

The EPP versions had more variation in finished weight (i.e. some were blown with denser EPP and came out heavier, others were lighter). The EPO planes are much more consistent in this regard.

The EPP planes are slightly less stiff than the EPO, but they do not dent in the same way that the EPO planes do. It's not that big of a deal with the EPO, as you can use various techniques to remove the dents, but things like the nose & etc. can get crushed over time, whereas on the EPP plane this is not as big of a deal (it's not even that big of a deal on the EPO planes).

Long story short, there was some drama associated with the move to EPO from the EPP-loving diehards (myself included in that group), but at the end of the day, the EPO planes fly just as well, and they've proven to be very durable.

On the plus side, quality control and repeatability has gone up with the EPO planes, so you can be assured of getting a more consistent product in the event you decide to replace an airframe. That's a very nice thing IMHO... you can basically drop in your gear and be flying within a very short amount of time, and have that magic new plane feeling immediately with less need to go through the whole trimming/dialing-in process.
