Our in house HobbyKing CA (Cyanoacrylate) is every bit as good as the brand names. Mixed at a 95% concentration and with a shelf life of 1 year plus a secure screw top steel nib container will ensure this glue stays fresh, right to the very last drop!
Our HobbyKing CA comes in a 50g bottle, the total weight of the bottle is around 70g.
Spec. Volume: 50g Viscocity: 175cps (Medium) Usage: This CA is still a little thin, though it does have some gap filling properties. Use it where you have a less than prefect mating of materials (joins).
The glue will usually dry in about 20sec (avg for medium) though depending on the surface you are applying it too it may not be clear. Gernerally you will see a cloudy like color. Not that dry does not mean cure! It can take up to 15min for it to fully cure through depending on how thickly you applied it.
I prefer the CA glue because I can pin a wing together, without glue, adjust anything and when correct glue all the joints in less than 45 seconds and it is dry in less than a minute and ready to Mono-Coat. It dries opaque and all my crashes have broken the wood and never the glue joints. It really is a super glue.
Imo rubber cement gle is best for depron as it gives a little then holds fast. HTH....PRODUCT ID: Mucilage-S Clear Foam Glue (Medium Cure) - Small 20g... PRODUCT ID: OR033-00601 Ultra Thin Foam Glue 40ml the first one is available in a 100ml tube as well HTHM (HTHMore lol)
Best bang for your buck for tire glue. I've glued over 6 sets of tires for my stampedes and I still have enough to do another 12 sets or more. The glue holds strong! and I use heavy amounts for heavy bashing. Removing the tires will be a challenge but the glue will release once you get it hot enough with a heat gun.
The bixler 1 and 2 are both EPO and this glue is fantastic for EPO use the kiker with this glue for instant and permanet repairs In the Feild :} HTH Kiker is PRODUCT ID: HK-151 Insta-Set CA Accelerator 2. oz
A word of advice. Only order what you think you can use in the next 3 months. The glue you aren't using, store in a dark cool place. It does go off and I mean GO OFF. I have 4 bottles absolutely rock solid. Definitely not worth stocking up on.
This stuff is great, but I strongly recommend you buy up now while this stuff is in stock. It sells out real quick because online sellers buy it on mass so they can sell it for twice as much on ebay. It's well worth buying some accelerator to go with it too- you don't always need it, but it's nice to have it when you do
I reccomend this CA, I have tried almost all Mediums on the market, This is great at a very low cost, I am trusting this glue on a Kadet Senoir with a payload of 1 pound and my new gopro camera mounted on top of the wing,I intend to purchase alot of this glue in the future.
It's just come back in stock, but unfortunately these kind of stock outages are routine at hobbyking. So many other online seller are buying all their stock for sale on ebay that they don't have anything left for their genuine customers
Nope, wont melt the rubber... might try thick CA though... and i bet it lasts longer than a couple of seconds, problems going to be with the smooth surface of the plate. This stuff is designed to soak into wood (thin), or fill gaps (thick) and medium is in between. you might try grinding your plate some to rough it up and give the glue something to grab onto. I use CA for a lot of non model projects and it holds up great. Anything you would use super glue on basically, or get froggy and t
attention si vous avez un probl?*me avec hobby ne comptez pas sur la guarantie, j'ai re?*u un swift avec un servo d?*fectueux cela fait 3 mois que je les contacte pour qu'il me le remplace !!! ne pas achetez chez eux a fuir careful if you have a problem with hobby do not count on the warranty, I received a swift with a faulty servo that's three months that I contact them to replace it myself! not to buy a home escape
I used it on my elapor funjet and it worked beautifully, best glue for sure! Use activator to reduce your set times if that's more convenient for you. If you use it on normal polystyrene though, it will melt it (unless you use activator and only apply the glue very thinly) Please award me a credit :-)
I just tried this on some EPP foam and it very quickly went through it! I have also just tried it on depron and it eats it, but quite slowly, I found if I used accelerator on it (I used the one from HK Insta-Set CA Accelerator 2oz idProduct=8456) it was just fine, dried before it had chance to eat it and stuck really well. Couldn't do that on the EPP, it went through it before I could get the accelerator on it.
Just an experiment that I thought I would share the results of, I think I will stick to using foam safe CA though. I know it tempting because it so cheap.
CA does eat depron, but will not eat epp.Are you sure it was epp? foam safe CA is available and wont eat anyfoam but is quite costly. Also Id advise against using that much kicker as it makes the ca very brittle.
Hiya, lol. Thanks for the information. Yeah that glue really anhilates foam. I put a bottle of Foam-safe CA glue on my workbench before i go flying, so its ready for use when i return with all the pieces :)
Yeah, it's not safe on some foams. Not just some types of foam, EPP, EPS, XPS, Depron, etc, but on some variations of those* like on less-dense foams and such. It's hard to make a foam-safe CA that can be used safely on most foams and still keep the price down like this. I use this on plastics mainly. :\
This is regular CA, for wood, some plastics, metal, etc. It is not for most foams.
It is compatible for use on EPP foam, like is used on the ParkZone Stryker or T-28 Trojan, or Multiplex birds. (actually this style CA is the recommended adhesive for them)
Where you can run into a problem is if you use too much at one time. When it kicks it gets really hot, and will melt any foam. Use it sparingly, apply kicker to one part, glue to the other, then stick together. You shouldn't have a problem t
If you find your glue going off try squeezing the tube sides and place the cap on keeping the sides still squeezed until the cap is on all the way as to creat negative presure in the bottle. CA requires air to cure.
Please credit me if you like this hint.
