Default Epoxy on depron Flat Foamy

Can I use epoxy on my Eflite Extra 260 flat foamy instead of CA?

I can't get that foam safe CA anytime soon and I want to get this plane in the air soon.

Cheers

Bruce

Yes. It just adds more weight than CA. I use 5 minute epoxy and have never had a problem.

Ok, good, I suspected as much but wanted to be sure before mucking it up, thanks for your help guys. I have a 1430 rpm/v outrunner to go into it so a little more weight won't be an issue. I am light on epoxy use anyway.

Cheers

I agree, epoxy is good for tiny items, epoxy is cool, a whole plane, make it into a brick, IMHO

I agree with CA being the better choice of the two but you guys make it sound like its similar to using lead. I used 5 minute epoxy to build my entire depron ModelAero AeroCat. underhand toss at 1/2 throttle, 70+MPH and unlimited vertical is hardly a 'brick' IMHO. But to each his own.

yeah, but then again, that is a fast plane where weight isn't such a prob, for him and a 3d, weight is a huge factor, he will want to keep it down to a minimum for the sake of performance

That's true. Good point Calvino. I made the assumption you were talking in general.
