Pico Jet Combat 400 > It's Blue ?

Is this right ?

All the pics, ad's etc I have looked at the PJC looked grey.

I got mine yesterday. And it's blue!

By the way, I have some contact CA, although the manual talks about 2 part CA, can I use my stuff?

or, Can I use epoxy ?

For foam, any 2 part epoxy OK, oderless foam friendly CA OK (it will say on the packaging), regular CA any viscosity (thin, medium, thick) NOT OK. Most regular CAs will eat foam readily.

The Pico-Jet Combat is made of ELAPOR and normal medium thick cyano will work just fine. I prefer ZAP-A-GAP for a all glue joints. Jürgen

Hinge tape?

I have a standard PJ and like it. But being regular foam and landing on concrete and tuff grass I know it sooner or later gonna die. When I ordered some other stuff from Höllein I couldn't resist ordering a PJC at the same time, to be ready when the PJ is to beat up.
Opening the PJC I notice that there were no hinge tape supplied. Does this mean thet the PJC doesn't require a hinge tape, or have multiplex just missed this in my kit?

Would appreciate reply from some one might know.

(Even if it isn't required I think it is god idea to put on tape over the hinge.)

I don't think tape is supplied. I have a PJ (not PJC) and TJ, I found the foam hinges too stiff on both models so cut the elevons off and did normal tape hinges. The PJ is over 2 years old and the tape hasn't lifted yet ...

No hinge tape is required for the CPJ. You bend it back and forth a couple of times (until you are happy with the free movement) - that's it. Warm weather, cold weather, Brushless motor - No problems. Jürgen
