Before, I had always run around my house, trying to find the single bottle of super glue that was lying around. But after I discovered Hobby City, I saw that they had super glue for only 50 cents a bottle! I immediately ordered 4 bottles, and waited a few weeks for them to arrive. When they finally came, they were labeled as 502 Cyanoacrylate, which seems to be the general name for all super glue made in China. There was a good amount of glue in the bottle, and definitely worth the 50 cents! To actually use the glue, you have to either cut the tip off, or poke a hole in the top. I only had scissors lying around so I cut the tip off. Next I decided to glue two balsa sticks together, so I carefully squeezed a drop out of the bottle, and put it on the stick. It turns out the glue is very thin, and it ran down the stick. If you plan on gluing things without getting your fingers stuck together, be very careful where you glue! After that, I decided to see if it was foam-safe, because using this to build my foam RC planes would be very helpful. I got a scrap piece of foam, and put a drop of glue on it. After creating a small crater in the foam after a little bit of sizzling, I could tell that the glue wasn't that great for foam.

Having cheap bottles of super glue around is handy; whenever something breaks you just grab the glue and fix it in seconds. I highly recommend getting the super glue from Hobby City. When you see them in stock, get em quick - they sell out fast!
