It's a extremely durable flexible adhesive and filler that comes in black or clear.
Sounds like I work for the company? No, but I highly recommend this product.
Also with an ice cube or wet finger you can make awesome looking feathered edges, textures and blends.
This is not your daddy's glue. :-)
 
Instamorph or Pollycaprolactone is also an awesome product.

I also really like shoo goo, but I find the application to be clunky. Specifically, the giant hole that it comes out of from the tube.

I would love it even more if there were a more precise way to apply it. I wonder if anyone makes screw n nozzles for the tubes that would make putting the exactly where you want it a little bit easier.

I am sure you could repurpose something. Even just an old cap with a smaller hole drilled in it. Or the end of a silicon caulking tube cleaned out and screwed on the end.

I wish that the FBL manufacturers would set up their units with clips on the plugs like the newer JR servos have on their leads (the leads plug into the servos-the connectors snap on so that they cannot pop off in flight, the leads come in various lengths).

Every FBL unit I have had has come with its own leads, so I would think this wouldn't be to difficult.

Yaaa 3d printing is great!! I also print all my own tail rod guides and a few other things. Will be printing a mount to hold the new YGE 160s with a heat sink to my Chronos when I buy it.

Are you able to get the plugs out if you use the shoe goo? I've used it before to fix some trim on a shoe, but once applied, didn't want to come off. Even after a couple years.

You have to be careful with ShooGoo. Just a small bead of it will do. It tends to self level as well so it covers a little more area than where applied. I have never not been able to remove it but it can be a little tricky sometimes. I heard that using a bit of pure alcohol at edge as it starts to peel really helps.

Thanks. Planning on getting a new bird this week, so I'll keep it in mind.
