Post Gluing question PLZ HELP

Hello guys i was just wondering what is the best glue to use for gluing a servo into a carbon fiber chassis, i do not want to use CA or super glue as it will be impossible to remove in future. All the best and happy racing.

Cant wait to get back to sydney and hit the track

Default Glue a Servo to a Chassis

FUK_WRX; (with a username like that you might not make too many friends here)

Use 'SHOE GOO' or 'GOOP' or similar. I would use a piece of THIN Servo tape, then a Fillet of GOO to keep it from movng around.

Strong, and can be forcefully peeled off if needed. Takes several hours at least to dry though.

Why would you want to glue your servo to the chassis???

No servo mounts?

I've seen people use heavy duty double-sided foam tape when they use standard servos for their 12th scale cars so you can try that.

Servo mounting holes are so easy to do I would never even concider glueing , unless the chassis dementions call for removing the mounting ears....

Simply----

1-bolt the servo mounts you are gonna use to the servo

2- take a piece of scrap clear plastic

3- turn the servo upside down so you can see the mounting holes

4- place the plastic over the servo and mark the mounting holes on the plastic

5- now use the plastic as a template for where to drill the servo mounting holes


SImple and easy!!!

You can drill servo mounting holes in no time....just get the proper bit and counter sink the 2 holes in the bottom of the chassis.

Ayos. Nice to meet a fellow countryman even if its on a Forum only. Drop by the Manila Racers forum to find out what's new in RC in the Philippines. We've come a long way from about 4 years ago.
