I have a Logo 400SE and I got the Revco canopy magnets to hold the back of the canopy together. I've tried the E6000 epoxy that came with the magnets and 5 minute epoxy and double sided tape. When I put the canopy together the magnets pull off the canopy when I open the back of the canopy. Dose anybody have any suggestions on what to use to keep the magnets stuck to the canopy.

I didn't buy the Revco kit, but built one myself. I used medium or thick CA for gluing the magnets to the balsa and the balsa to the canopy after shaping it to match the curve.

i use a deans plug and 30 minute epoxy with good results. i admit the magnets are cleaner/easier to use. but, mounting is the same idea.

if it ain't broke, break it.

Sorry for taking so long. Here's a couple of pix of my version of the magnet retainers.
