Default Top Cap with YS .53 questions...

Started to see how everything is going to fit in the wings last night. The Slim Hayes 8oz will barley fit in, and the servo tray will be right against it holding it in place. It's a little permanent for my liking, but I'd rather not have the tank hanging on the fuse.

When trial fitting the wing to the fuse I noticed lots of slop. I think I'm going to use thin ply shims to make the fit a bit tighter, and I will use Epoxy, as I can't see CA filling the gap. Has anyone else have this issue, or is it just me?

I had some wing slop issues with my Pizazz. I just did a little shiming with some balsa and used epoxy. I pushed it into the gap with a popsickle stick. When it was close to being setup, I smothed the epoxy with a wet finger. A little later, before everything was really hard, I cleaned of any excess epoxy with alcohol. After I was done, I sealed the seam with RTV. Worked really well. hasn't come lose.

I fit my own wing with my SuDoKhoi. No slop I just wicked in some thin ca to bond it. There was a little gap toward the trailing edge that I filled in with some medium CA, then hit it with kicker. After everthing had a chance to setup, I sealed with RTV to keep the fuel out. Worked great.
