    Glow silicon lines seem to hold up fine. The problem is with glow fuel corroding the metal fittings, brass, etc. over time. Enough builds up to...

    What engine mounts are you going to use? The ones that came with the plane? Yes you can do as you said to hold the weights on. Remember though...
