Default Apprentice Stabilizer/Rudder--Necessary to Epoxy??

I have assembled my first electric--the Apprentice--and am concerned that the stab and rudder are held in place by 2 really small screws. Anyone have experience with this method of attachment? Are the 2 screws sufficient? Would epoxy by a good idea? The only down side I can see is the additional weight. Thanks. Gary

Properly applied epoxy won't add significant weight... but the screws will hold it fine.

Mine flew for years with no glue in the tail until a crash bent up the forward part of the vertical fin. (Nothing to do with the tail. Either an ail servo finally gave out, or it lost tx signal as it was pointed at it. I think it was the former as it was already a bit noisy.) I just Zapped it back in to keep it straight.
