1. What glue to you guys use on the undercarriage assembly ? It states epoxy on the manual by that seems to me to be a bit too permanent. I was thinking of either using hot glue (my preferred choice) or CA (at least it can be dissolved) My thoughts were that if epoxy was used and one part of the undercarriage was to break you would have to replace the whole lot, whereas with hot glue you could heat it up and just replace that broken element.

2. Does anybody put on that battery holder thing ?

Also if there is anybody from Robbe reading this:

your battery holder and undercarriage leg support set up is a joke.

yes the battery holder isn't the best especially when we can make more efficient use of velcro traps. as to glue choice what I do is apply a very small amount of ca with a tooth pick. though hot glue should work as well. either way just check them on occasion...kind of hard to land without them

I'm back...God please help me be nice to my wallet!

Hello Try Shoo Goo, if you break a piece you can replace it. I have also used a contact type cement "Walthers Goo" it too can be removed.

I left the battery holder thing off and used velcro as well. Depends on your battery choice, you can also make a mounting plate that fits on the LG braces.

Hope this helps, John

I have been using CA. You can put the plastic parts in boiling water and yank out the broken carbon bits. Less glue is fine since the landing gear are not loaded in tension. Maybe just put it at the outside edge for easy removal.

I used a SMALL amount of epoxy on the legs and just put some loctote on the skids to stop them moving. (Not exactly strong but it doesn't seem to matter. I did have reason to repair the legs but just used some carbon tube I had available after cleaning out the hole with a selection of Dremel tools!

The battery mount that Robbe recommend was probably designed on a friday afternoon after a session in the pub! The Velcro ties seem to be the best bet for me.
