Default DLE 55RA Engine on Aeroworks Ultimate Biplane 50 cc

Recently I tested my Ultimate biplane from Aeroworks with this new engine. The first day the engine screws came loose so I put more thread locker. Yesterday they came loose again. Have any of you had the same problem with this engine and if so how did you solve it. Thanks

I had a minor issue with the side exhaust version (55cc) but later realized I had broken TWO cardinal rules... (was in a hurry, and am now embarrassed ;D)
I didn't use lock washers.
I used BLUE Loctite (medium / low temp)
lock washers + RED Loctite = NO MORE loose screws.
