I have built two guillows models and used glue sticks for the covering on both of them. I have not used UHU but most people say that it is the best. By the way have you tried flying it yet? I built the guillows super cub and converted it to rc as my first plane and needless to say, carnage ensued :cry:.

If you fly it free flight I can say from personal experience that the rubber included in the kit doesn't work well. FAI Super Tan Sport Rubber is supposed to work well.

I flew it free flite. It flew fantastic, but I tried flying it with rubber and it crashed due to poor thrust angle. The crash broke several spars and I decided to shelve it for repairs. I am planning to do either the 900 series Chipmunk or typhoon and do a electric conversion. It really depends on how much time and money I have this summer.
