Its probably that 777XX thats doing it !! Certainly motors
off the ground. was at little ol Farnborough yesterday watching
it fly around. Had the 35 doing hover as well, what a noise.
Funny was looking at the Click Bond stand and the range of
bits they do, shame they are so pricey. Lots of useful pieces for
our little machines.
Have a good Osh guys.

Haha.. Ya..its powdered steel mixed in epoxy. Shocking! Hot
here in Oklahoma?.. at least the runways don't melt
like they have happening in England. :-)
I usually use the quick set, but in your heat it
may set too quickly. I am usually doing just one or two at a
time so good for me. Only gotcha is that JB Weld conducts
electricity, so don’t pot any electronics in it. Don’t ask me
how I know.
Did you use the quickset or the longer cure version,
My experience is like Sam’s that flox
mounted hardware sometimes breaks loose (despite very
careful surface prep). I have never had this happen with
a ClickBond fastener, nor a metal fastener bonded with
JB Weld, hence my choice of JB weld over flox for
My experience with flox mounted
bolts/screws is sooner or later they break off.
I like keeping it simple. You
can just install t-ee nuts on the back side of
the firewall. You can use pop rivets to hold
them in place.
The other non-elegant thing that
I do, is to simply drill a 3/16" hole and
creatively use wire ties. I try not to do that
too often though. Then I caulk the hole with
RTV type goo.

Is there a recommended mounting method for
firewall components ... Thru bolt or flox

Love building planes almost as much as
flying. Latest completed build is "Loki", a
Chinook Plus 2 bush plane.
