I took delivery of a hobbyking hummer this week. Its the xtreme version but it looks like it could just be the original rebadged with new colours.

Anyway, before I start the build I wanted to receive views on what adhesives people used on their one and if any worked better than others please?

Hi Andy, I used £ shop UHU to stick my original version together.

Fuz side strengtheners were contact glued, but spars were just pushed into the slots filled with glue and left to dry for a day.

None of the joints have come apart in hours of flying, including a few arrivals laugh

Just information Andy

Hot Glue is very quick to use, but lacks the penetration for some materials, and

Is probably the heaviest form of joining in our locker
