What are you guys using to hold your gov magnets in the metal upgrade fan? I was going to use green locktite and let it cure over night.... Any input?

CA glue. over 3 gallons thru it so far and no issue.

dab it in the hole and put the magnet in and wipe off the excess. let it dry and put another thin coat over it and on the fan some.

magnets
30 minute epoxy for me.Dont want to lose in flight
Ca and locktight arnt sutable ca is to brittle and lock tight loses its strength when hot
After all lose a magnet in 3d and good chance you will lose heli due to vibrations

I've seen green lock tight used to secure cylinder sleeves in Diesel engines... Just figured it'd be a safe bet for a heli fan. I can't imagine the fan itself getting terribly hot but I could be wrong.
