My old standby is the Testor's Model glue in the RED tubes.


The blue non-toxic stuff is just outright garbage. I use the good red testors model glue for about anything that needs glued. The option would be the Testor's plastic cement, which comes in a glass jar, and is a little more expensive, but very easy to use and effective.


The plastic on the syma millitary helis is rather soft, fairly Styrene-esque. The model glue will work to glue about anything together, but not wood, hard resin models, or anything that requires specialty glues, such as PVC cement or Krazy Glu. The plastic cement welds soft plastic together by melting the plastic and "welding" it together like one single peice.


For the gun pods, I would say to use the Model Glue, while the body of the heli would require the plastic cement to repair cracks and whatnot.


I think we need SF to change the title of the forum from "Other Makes of Heli" To "Other brands of heli" since it's kinda not apparant to non-car-people that make means brand... Wink Don't worry, I guess it'd be SMG, (or SM?) you're alright, no harm done. Wink

OOPS Try super glue or if there is a good grip some PTFE tape, but not sure what to advise can you send a pick of the problem ?
