if all else fails...
follow the instruction manual

Hint. Add 1/4" triangle stock to brace the glue joint. one sideways landing and the fins snap right off.

I've used white aliphatic wood glue to glue my fins and they won't snap off... This kind of glue never breaks. Those tri stocks are useless unless you use CA glue or other ****ty glue.

It is not the glue joint that fails, but the wood just beyond the joint.

I then tend to believe that either the glue I use penetrates wood better or I was lucky to have stronger balsa than normal in my kit .

Stronger balsa is heavier balsa. Not so sure I would call that lucky. [8D]
