I use RC-56. It looks like Elmer's white glue, but it dries crystal clear.

Default canopy

I like to hold mine down with strips of self stick monocote trim. Never had one come loose, and if you do it in a matching color as the fuse, you have to look hard to see how it's held on!

I used RC-56 for years. Make sure you get the old formula if you can. The new thick stuff sux. The old stuff was the best for canopies. Loved it.

I vote for little tiny button head screws! Quick and easy to do, no drying time, no fogging, no spills, easy to remove if a "pilot adjustment" is needed.

I like the ones at : http://www.microfasteners.com/catalo...cts/TWSSTP.cfm

Get them in black, they look really sharp! Less than $0.04 each.

Default Servo / Hatch screws

They also work great as non-slip hold down screws for hatches, servo mounting, ect. eliminating the "*(*&&^%$" when the the screw driver slips off a phillips or slotted screw dinging the finish.
