I still use R/C 56. I think its available under different names. It is VERY thin ( allmost like elmers glue) & takes patience to apply, but dries clear. It works for me.....Gene

+1 Lucky me, I have some old that is very thick and I just mix some new with it. Not sure why the new formula is so thin. Holds very good.

I've used "Foam Tac" and "Goop". My procedure here http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=11038682 The cool thing is you can remove the canopy if needed without issue. The Goop will peel off like that sticky stuff used to keep coupons in magazines. The Goop works better than Foam Tac

I just bought a new bottle of Pacer Formula 560 from Tower and threw my old bottle out because it no longer dried clear. John

I've been using Super Phatic a lot lately. Tried it on the windows for my Goldberg Eaglet 50 and it worked great. It dries tons faster than RC-56 (or 560) too.
