any contact glue will do, like the one that is included in the box

cool! I used a very sharp hollow short piece of alu tube just a tad bigger diameter than the lenses, pressed it onto the foam and turned it in circles while pressing down gently, I had a perfect hole this way without damaging the foam

In the past that’s what I did and then just filled in around the led with spackle. This will be much nicer.

Not for the T-33 though, sold it yesterday.

Yes, I posted a couple weeks ago that I got bored with this one fast. Not that it did anything bad, au contraire it did everything to well. I did put a lot of flights on it and then had a great offer since they’ve been out of stock

I just got one in the German scheme. I've seen a bunch at the Basin flying and they looked pretty fast. I'm putting in the Freewing all aluminum 12-blade in runner EFD.
I found an interesting article on the real airplane.
