Has anyone had any success with using CA to repair parts? The ball broke off of my tail slider and a seesaw arm broke...can I use CA to repair these and not worry or is replacement the best practice?

I think I would keep CA away and just buy new parts, the parts you mentioned are quite cheap.
Edit: CA has no place on any failed mechanical moving part IMHO

Absolutly under no surcumstances use CA to flix a broken part that is anywhere near critical. Balls fall under the category. I personally do not "doctor" any broken part. I simply replace it. These things can be dangerous, or deadly in the best of situations. No need to add to, or agrivate that. So in my oppinion that is an absolute no go.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

Glue = Bad!

Don't glue broken parts back together, they will fail again! Replace the parts needed with fresh "new car" smelling parts.

Don't hurt yourself or someone else, in trying to save a few dollars, it's not worth it.

Cheers,
Jeff

Yo, Brian.....I heard some one calling my name???

Agreed, replace, not repair. It could cost a LOT more next time it fails !

To do what was mentioned is a serious safety issue, hence what you termed as negative replies.
Asking if you could use CA to fix parts is like asking, can I use bailing wire to to affix the wheels on a roller coaster.
