Pro Lok is Perfect for Model Helicopters

Pro Lok Thread Lock is a must-have for many model hobbyists, especially if your model of choice is a remote control helicopter. As the video above demonstrates, using a threadlocker is essential to keeping your helicopter in the air. This is because a product like Pro Lok keeps nuts and bolts in place, resisting loosening due to vibration. This will keep your model in the air, and save you the hassle of having to make repairs because of a crash. Although the video deals with RC helicopters specifically, this is also good advice for model planes and even model cars that might have similar moving parts.

Pro Lok is best used for metal-to-metal applications. It goes on easily, sets fast, and holds strong. There are some instances where Pro Lock is inappropriate for threadlocking applications. Toward the end of the video, you’ll notice that the host suggests using “CA” if you’re bonding metal to plastic. “CA” stands for cyanoacrylate, which is a fancy way of saying Super Glue. Essentially, if you have Pro Lok and Super Glue, you can keep your models from rattling loose in mid-flight.
