I'm building a Sceadu Evolution 30, and it says to adhere the paddle cap to the paddle. Right now I'm leaving all weight in it for stability as I'm still a novice (can fly simple circuits on my T-Rex 450, and hover fairly in all directions) but I'm sure in the near future I will want to remove some or all of the weight. It seems to me the forces of rotation wanting to throw stuff outward would make it not necessary to glue the paddle cap, is this a safe assumption?

Yes you need to. Only use a spot of CA Thin glue so you will be able to take it apart later if need be. I usually just spot the trailing and leading edges of the paddle. Never had one come apart yet. And they come apart if you want to take them apart.

I never glued mine on my Sceadu or Freya. Centrifugal force keeps them in place, pretty much rendering the glue pointless . . . and even with no glue, its a PITA to get them open . . . it's not like they are loose or anything . . .

Really, on all my Evos sep for 2 my paddles ends can just pop right apart, reason for the light dab of CA. Dont kno what PITA is but yeah the other two Evos paddles they are a pain to get apart with no glue.

PITA - Pain In The A** . . . . they really are annoying to get apart, and I have never had a loose one, not that it's not possible. Even if they were a little loose, I probably still wouldn't worry about it, since there are no forces acting on the head that would make them open or the weights come out . . .

Never glued mine. Even with no weights they hold together very well unless they've been damaged in a crash. If you damage them to the point that the little plastic pin at the trailing edge gets buggered then they don't hold on as tight.

The brass weights also help to keep the cap in place, so if you're just learning keep the brass weights in and don't glue the caps.

No glue. Centrifugal force is the ticket!!

I've never glued the caps in place either and they stay put just fine.

I meant to do that!
