I am using CA hinges in a 1/4 scale aerobatic plane with a GAS engine.............MANY MANY flights later the hinges are still there. I would not build a bigger plane with CA hinges though. Just because of the $$$ wrapped up in the BIG BOYS.

Everything I own, from 1/2A to 1/4 scale uses CA hinges with no failures. Many, many flights on each!
