Default Hinge

Is there a difference between a CA Hinge and EZ Hinge ?
If so, what is it . I read reference to the EZ Hinge sometimes
in the threads .

I'm pretty sure an EZ hinge is a plastic hinge made by Sig. Unlike a CA hinge you would use epoxy with the EZ hinges.

Pinned hinges is the only kind I will use and as I recently learned, for pinned hinges, using a product called hinge glue is far easier to use than epoxy.

"CA Hinge" is a generic term and "EZ Hinge" is a brand same for the same thing. These hinges are also known as flexible hinges, laminated hinges and mylar hinges.

If you want to fly your plane and "hope" your hinges don't fail...use CA Hinges. If you want to fly and know they won't fail...use pinned hinges.

And if you install your CA hinges correctly, you'll never have a failure.

Of course, if you don't trust your building skills, use those clunky old-fashioned pinned hinges.

I got to jump back in and get my feet wet.
I think either one is ok ,if done correctly.
Lighter planes(smaller) I would lean more to
the CA Hinges and bigger planes both hinges
could be used.
