Am putting together a Twisted Hobbies Lil Fokker which is made from EPP with carbon rods. Instructions say use cyano, thin and thick, i can``t use it as it gives me asthma, not great with this virus around! I have plenty of UHU POR, would this give a good enough bond between the carbon rods and the EPP?

I take it that you mean the rods/strips that are let into the panels as stiffeners... I like epoxy for this, but gorilla glue works well but can be messy...

Uhu Por is fine, long as it's the foam safe type.

Can't use cyano either, but UHU POR works very well. I've used it to assemble three Twisted models and never had a problem.

POR Martin is the ideal glue for EPP as stated above
Follow the tube instructions and the bond is stronger than the EPP

UHU Porous is fine but avoid the UHU Plus acrylit, it eats foam.

Many thanks for the replies, build is coming along well, hoping to finish it tonight as weather looks ok for a maiden tomorrow. Will the UHU POR bond the plastic motor mount to the EPP ok or would i be better off using some 30 min epoxy?

I use Uhu Por and Welders glue and the welders glue is noticeably stronger than por but is more expensive.
