Super glue on screws in plastic frames. Is this a good idea I have had a few that have backed out a little and had the servo serews back out a little also.Or is there something made for plastic?

A little blob of superglue works fine for me to keep the buggers in when they strip.

Yup, a tiny drop of CA always worked well for me! It also beefs up holes that have stripped.

I'd say it's mandatory on the boom support screws.

When you got a plastic framed Raptor, Super Glue (CA) is your best friend when your doing the post and preflight! Just a drop of it will take the slop out of the screw set. Good luck........

Another method
We used to have a lot of problems with servo case screws backing out with the 1/4 scale fiberglass plank jobs due to transit vibration thru the air frame. Since we didn't want to harm the threaded portion of the case s screw bore.

We'd put just a tiney touch of RTV over the top of the screw head to keep it from rotating even after it was tight .

If the threaded portion of the plastic won't hold the screw , replace the part - or risk loosing your bird.

PS. Here's a pic of a water base paint job on a R30 bleach bottle.

check to see that you are using the thin CA.

Actually medium CA is what you want.
