    Hey guys...

    having trouble keeping the ESC stuck down. I change the tape, 10 minutes into bashing (long enough for the ESC to heat up) the glue lets go, and the ESC is flopping around. I have tried three different types of double sided tape. Any ideas?

    I put hot glue on the sticky tape before I put it on and if at all possible put a zip tie around the whole thing.

    I use 3m "Duel Lock" Velcro. And a zip tie.

    @MaxxAction I have been using heavy duty velco in all of my RC's. Make sure you clean the surface of any dirt, glue, and so on before sticking the velcro on. Once on I've not had any issues with receivers or ESC's falling off.

    I ended up using a large zip tie as well. Nothing else seemed to work for me.
