Pretty much the same glues that worked for Wright Stuff will work for helicopter. Same issues of minimizing weight will maximizing strength. The gluing discussion we migrated over from the old Wright Stuff site: http://soinc.org/sites/default/files/up ... weight.pdf still applies.

I would get it, but I always forget when I buy stuff online and I can't find it anywhere else.

You can find ambroid cement at:
turnertoys.com (under competition balsa something or other)
or
a2zcorp.us (science olympiad category)

Does anyone know of a CA glue remover? For example, acetone dissolves ambroid cement. Is there anything like that for CA?

Does acetone work on softening CA glue as well? I've been reading around, and acetone seems to work. Any experience?

I tried using nail polish remover today on my CA glue, and it did not work. Instead, it just made the balsa week enough so that the thing rips off.
