Ok, we LOVE the movie “CARS” and the Disneyland theme park based on it, but can you believe the new Disney movie, “PLANES” is coming out August 9, 2013?  We are so excited!! 

Super Glue Corporation and Pacer Technology began decades ago producing model airplane kits!  Since that time we have continued to work with model airplane enthusiasts and hobbyists to develop the best adhesives in the business for building custom Radio Control (RC) planes, jets, rockets, etc. 

Our ZAP brand partners produce the world famous TOP GUN and FLORIDA JETS air show/competitions for RC scale model airplanes and jets!

Many of the drone operators of the past came out of this hobby world and it is a world we know and LOVE!

According to this USA TODAY article, DisneyToon’s animated adventure “PLANES” will hit theaters in 3D August 9, 2013!  John Lasseter is Executive Producer.  So fun!  Can’t wait!!

Ok, so sometimes the simplest tips are THE BEST!  Check this one out from 2BrothersHobby!  They recommend using Pacer’s Z-42 Threadlocker to secure these bolts and screws on their Hansa-Brandenburg ARF seaplane! 

And here’s their terrific, product-saving tip:

“I found it easiest to put a few drops of Thread Locker on an inverted plastic cup so I could dip each fastener in turn, instead of continuously reaching for the bottle and possibly applying too much.”

How great is that?!  The best tips for product use come directly from our consumers!

If you have a great tip for using one of our products let us hear from you and you may win free products!

Check out these AMAZING Monster Planes!  These giant scale RC Aircraft were recently showcased at the Monster Plane USA event in Lakeland, Florida.  This unique event is not a competition, but an opportunity to show off and FLY these incredible model airplanes weighing up to 125 pounds!  ZAP(R) is a proud sponsor of the Monster Planes events and we received the following specifics on these planes from representatives attending the event:

“The Bucker Jungmiester is 50%or 1/2 of the full size with a 143 inch wingspan.  The yellow bi-plane is all wood built up with ZAP(R), and the P-47 has a composite fuselage with a wood sheeted wing and tail.  This type of event is great for new builders …” 

ZAP(R) adhesives were originated for the model rocket, miniature railroad, and radio-controlled (RC) airplane hobby worlds.  Specific formulas of ZAP(R) were developed for use on plastic, fiberglass, balsa wood, and metal.  ZAP(R) is durable and versatile and is recognized as having extreme resistance to breakage and failure.  When you see the amount of hard work that goes into these hobbies you can appreciate how important it is to trust the products used in constructing the projects.   Strong bonds have formed between the manufacturers of ZAP adhesives and the hobbyists who use the products.  Events like these provide wonderful opportunities to meet, greet, and brainstorm ideas on how products can continuously be improved to keep up with developments in the each specific hobby.

Frank Tiano is the mastermind behind some of the great showcase events for RC aircraft model planes and ZAP(R) glues have been associated with Frank all along the way!   Starting with Top Gun (an elite competition for RC scale planes and jets), Monster Planes (an event featuring Giant Scale RC aircraft weighing up to 125 pounds) and the upcoming Twelve O’Clock High event (a new, exciting RC Warbird Event featuring all sizes of aircraft flown from 1914-1954).  These weekend long events are great fun for RC Aircraft builders and provide an opportunity for families, and interested spectators, to get an up close and personal look at all of the research, hard work, and detail that go into the RC Aircraft building hobby.

If you are ever in the Lakeland, Florida area you will definitely want to catch one of these fascinating airshows!  Who knows? … You may find yourself caught up in a whole new hobby!
