I think you are right on that. I think I will look for a smaller plane, maybe I can find an older 40 size stick arf. Thanks.

Hey, thanks for that info. I will send him a message and see if he can help me. In case not, I would still be interested in hearing from anyone else about the EZ Chipmunk. Thanks.

The Chipmunk is a 40 size. The only thing I have yet to test is how the E6000 holds up to nitro fuel residue. If need be I can super glue the edges of the plastic just to seal them up. That's...

Well, after trying everything mentioned, including plasti-zap, poly-zap, epoxy, sanding, different cleaners,etc., I finally settled on E6000 glue. It is like a thinner version of shoe goo or goop. ...
