I just bought a foam plane model and am having trouble finding glue that won’t melt the foam. The only thing I’ve found is silicone, which seems to make the parts separate unless pressure is applied. the next step is to glue the plastic motor housings to the foam. Can anyone recommend a glue good for this readily available at a hardware store? the silicone is really a pain to work with.

In my foamy days ,I used 5 & 30 min apoxy that you can get at Walmart or hardware store ,an believe me ,you will need
it on the parts that break on crashes ,clear packing tape is good to wrap wings ,it make the wing more stronger!

Why use glue when you can TAPE?!?!

Foamies is not new to the RC world ,folks also had nitro fueled engine planes like the Cox Ez Bee ,my friend had that an wrapped
his in clear tape ,not only did it add strength to the wings ,it also made the foam more fuel proof!

The tape wasn't used to tape parts together ,it was used to add durability to the plane!

Then put glue on the sticky side of the tape ;)
