Yeah; duco will not seep into the glue like CA does. I remember using a lot of Duco in Wright Stuff, Would be a good option to go with certain glues for certain parts from my experience (rotors <_<).

Yeah, for me I tend to use Duco to reinforce some of the joints on the rotors after tacking them together with a tiny dot of CA. Other than that it's good for other places where things need to be readjusted, pretty sure it would just pop off if you used it for towing. Even using CA for the towing has it popping up a bit.

Dang, that's really impressive!! How did you get such a significant jump from like 1:15 to over 3 minutes? :O Like what do you think was the most important factor for increasing your time so much?

The most important factor was definitely weight. We went from over 5g with the double-stick body Chinook to about 3.4g with our first FF kit. Later we reached exactly 3.0g.

Very very impressive. Did you guys find any modifications to the FFM kit to be helpful, or were you able to get a 3 minute time without modding the original plans?
