    How to do major UM t-28 repair

    Expensive dog toy

    anyway, buying all new foam parts. What do you glue the electronics back in with. I was going to use a glue gun. I have the regular strength clear, glue, and there's a stronger glue included. Is this stuff ok or is weight bad. Should I consider something else for repairs?

    You can use CA glue made specific for Foam. I will not use heated glue to glue the electronics specially the receiver, you may damage it. I'm sorry that your dog damage the aircraft. I know the feeling, being there happened that.[:@]

    RE: How to do major UM t-28 repair

    I agree with the other poster.I think CA and some kicker is a better choice. It will help keep things lighter too, as you mentioned.But if you go the CA route make sure to get foam safe CA and you will maybe need a bottle of Kicker/Accelerator. CA Glue Kicker/Accelerator cures CA glue almost instantly. Ask you hobby dealer about the kicker.I also think it best when using any type of Kicker to cover electric parts(like the receiver) with a paper towl before spraying kicker in that area.

    Hope you didn't punish the dog too much...they're just animals.

    RE: How to do major UM t-28 repair

    Thanks for the help! Any idea what kind of glue they used at the factory?
    No i didn't punish him. except to leave the park early. i love him. and I'd let him chase it around. Its my fault i crashed it. he just caught up with it...finnally. I'm just sad I can't fly it around when he's around.

    RE: How to do major UM t-28 repair

    The stuff that the factory uses to glue things together is a kind of silicone adheasive. It's not all that bad but it's slow to cure and not all that strong either.

    A good silicone bonding agent will work but it drys very slow. Of course if you use CA it may be more trouble to fix it next time, but you are getting better....right?

    I know how you feel. Dogs just don't understand that everything that flys is not a toy for them and it's natural for them to want to pounce on things that land in front of them.

    My favorite breed is Yellow Lab....oh what one of them could do to a foam aircraft.

    RE: How to do major UM t-28 repair

    I have a Collie, her mouth is bigger than the plane. I make sure she is no where nearby when I fly. Besides the noise of the prop scares her away!

    I hope it's calm this weekend, I havent had a chance to fly in over a month. The last time I had good flying weather, I couldnt get the ESC to arm. Fixed that problem, but have yet had a calm day.

    Tried ti edit, but it kicked back errors.


    Oh, silicone would be my choice for mounting the electronics, its electrically nuetral, and has shock absorbtion properties too.  I would put a dab of it where you mount the piece, and then tape it down until it cures.  after about 4 hours it should be cured enough to remove the tape, and 24 hours later 100% cured.  It cleans up easy too if you have to redo it.

    RE: How to do major UM t-28 repair

    I've used tacky glue with much success mounting electronics and motors to these foam planes. It does take over night to dry, but it is cheap and easily available at any craft section of a discount store.

    It dries more flexible than Elmers. Its actually just a "rubbery" form of Elmer's vinyl glue.
