Default Gutter pipe and CA

Hi!

I am about to build my first plane, and it will be SPAD. I've been to Home Depot today, but didn't find a 2.5" PVC pipe,
only round ones. I also didn't find anything that recembles CA at the glue stand. Where do you guy get this stuff?
What exactly "CA" is? Does it stand for anything?

Thanks.

CA = super glue, you can find it at the hobby shops as ZAP, or better yet look for Handibond CA, which is designed for plastics, and works very well with coroplast.

CA is an abbreviation for Cyano Acrylates which is the chemical name for what most people know as Super Glue. Since you are in California your best bet is to try you local Hobby Shop. It comes in 3 types Thin,Medium and Thick I use medium almost exclusively on my SPADS.

Get the CA from your local hobby shop. Use medium. If you aren't close to a hobby shop, order online from Tower Hobbies.

Ace Hardware stores is where I have found the 2 1/2" gutter pipe.
