    Testing HobbyKing Foam and glue...

    I received two boxes of HobbyKing foam board this past week. This morning I'd cleaned off my bench for a new 3D EPP kit build and I got to thinking about the new HK stuff and what glue it might use. This is in no way scientific. Or well planned, thought out, or possibly even effective. But it...

    Getting velcro to stick?!

    Any tips on how to get velcro to stick to foam? Best glue? I don't like spending the money on the adhesive velcro so I am looking for a good alternative. I've tried super glue and hot glue and neither seems to work too great, especially for the battery on the bottom of the swappables. Thanks.

    Scratch-build Glue Suggestions?

    Hey guys, I'm going to be getting into my first scratch build in a week or so, do you guys have any recommendations about glues for Adams ("dollar tree") foam board? I was thinking about using hot glue, but I have two concerns with it. If the hot glue has too low a melting point, it may pull...

    Hot glue hinges, reviewed.

    Hello everyone.. So, in my first plane I used the kind of hinges we learnt to do with experimental airlines (I think). They worked nice and did their job, but somehow I did not like the way they affected the look of the plane, nor also the fact you need to trim the edge of the aileron in a 45...
