    A few glue questions

    I just received my Nitroplanes Neptune flying wing (ARF) made out of EPO foam. I read alot of the posts on EPO foam and still have some questions re: the various adhesives. I already used canopy glue to secure the carbon fiber tube wing joiner to the center section (seemed to work very well, but the stuff is very thin). So here goes my questions.

    1. Would you use canopy glue to join the wings to the center section? Would gorilla glue be better?

    2. Would you use canopy glue or gorilla glue for the smaller things like 2 vertical stabs and plastic servo protectors on the bottom of the wing?

    3. The servos look like they are already glued in, but I am not positive. I was thinking to use some clear silicone adhesive on the corners and edges of each servo so I could peel it off and replace a servo if need be. I also might want to put some silicone in the wire trenches for the servo wires. What do you think?

    Any help would be appreciated because this is my first venure with EPO foam.
