Tip of the Week: 2/3/2013 Better Short Course Wings and Fins

As short course bodies become more, um, sophisticated, manufacturers are adding all sorts of fins and wings to increase aerodynamic performance. Usually the strongest method of attaching the wings is with small screws and nuts. Unfortunately, this is a little time consuming, slightly raises the CG and often tear out and rip the body. The alternative method of using servo tape simply doesn’t work; you might as well just save yourself some time and shatter the little wings around the track. Another method that does work well is to attach the fins with silicone glue. Just make sure both surfaces are clean and give the glue plenty of time to dry.
