Remember your goal here is to build light (don't
slop on heavy glues and over do paint as weight is not your friend ) you are
shooting to build a plane under 7oz here.
A few of the Best tips are
1. don't use any type of glue to hold servos in place they are just
held in by cutting the foam a little smaller then the servo and taping
them in place with some small pieces of strapping tape.
2. I use Hot glue
to attach my control horns.
3. Motor mount is just held in
place with tape.
4. Attach your speed controller to the fuselage with a drop
of hot glue.
5. use a strip of velcro that holds the battery in
place just big enough to hold the pack. my strip is only 1/2 inch by 4
inches it does not need to be as big as the whole pack (velcro is
stronger then you think)
6. I use becon foam tac glue now to glue in all my carbon rods (glue
dries clear and is very flexible) and wont break or crack in a crash,
and won't turn yellow with time.
