Building Tip of the Week: Installing Control Surface Horns

Posted by aerobeez On October - 16 - 2014

Hello Aerobeez Pilots! Welcome back for another installment of Pete’s Tip of the Week. As always, these tips are intended to help with all types of model building, even if you don’t own an Aerobeez plane or have yet to take the first step into becoming an RC pilot. We want to help you improve your model building, set-up, and eventually flying skills.

So without further ado, today’s tip will focus on: Installing Control Surface Horns


Prior to gluing any control surface horns, Pete will always sand the area where the glue will be applied.  On fiberglass and or composite control surface horns, sanding the area will create a much stronger bond between the wood and the horns.  Using a electric rotary tool would be best, however, regular 800 grit or below sandpaper will work just fine.  One each horn, you will sand or “scuff” all four sides.  After sanding, clean off the dust from the horns.  If you have some household rubbing alcohol around, use a small rag and a small amount to wipe the horn clean before gluing.


Thank you all for reading Pete’s Tip of the Week and check back for more each week!
