Safe adhesive to Repair 420LF case
I was capturing video at too great a distance today at the airfield and lost orientation, resulting in a more minor crash. I have to replace the landing skid struts and the tail rotor slider. Aside from that, the casing of the Align 420LF motor separated at the end by the pinion shaft.

Question: What's the safest adhesive to use to lock it back in place? I don't have any of the R48 left that came with the kit. I have various thicknesses of CA and I'm willing to make the trek to the local Home Depot or Lowes to get what's recommended.

Thanks!

I used quick setting epoxy on mine. Seems to be working.

Green loctite is the prefered method. Basically R48. I use some stuff I got at the local auto parts store, clean off all the old loctite, then apply some new green and you will be all set... I have done it twice, once with a Hacker motor, and once with my 420LF, no problems since.... just make sure its back in straight when fixing it But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....
