I've always used 5-minute epoxy and never had a problem.

Grips?
Some people say to use CA, I haven't tried it so I can't comment on that. I use 15 min. epoxy on mine and i put a small spring clamp on it to "seat" until it cures, score the inside of the grip where it contacts the blade, be sure to remove the shrink covering UNDER the grips ....leave a very small amount of the shrink cover (undercut it) so the edge of the grip will keep it in place.

I had never glued the grips on untill I saw what happens when you don't. My uncle had his Mystar 50 explode in the air when the blade let go. Not a pretty helicopter anymore. Sorry Mystarman.

When you buy a set of Thundertiger blades now, they have a big caution label telling you to glue the grips and they even supply the glue in the box with the blades.
