Another method I use is to put a small slit down both sides and insert .026 plastic coated fishing leader wire. Flood it with thin CA. Makes for a rigid fuse.

Hardest one for me is hanging on the prop vertically for any length of time. The only one that works well is my old beater Zoombi. I just ask it nicely and it will do it for me.:D

There's a slot in the bottom for the batt. I cut a longer slot all the way up to the nose to get the 500ma batt far enough forward for decent flight. Flew good after that.

I got tired of chasing the Dremel across the floor from the vibration. So I finally bought a Ryobi with variable speed and never looked back. As said above the Delta bandsaw does 99% of the work.
