    I installed a new Itelite dbs antenna on my RC and I had to remove the sticky substance from the pads underneath the RC that cover up the screw holes. I used 3M Permanent double sided tape to stick them back on but they keep falling off. I need something stronger, a nice strong double sided thin piece of adhesive. Any ideas on what to buy?

    3M VHB (Very High Bonding) tape works great. It is now my second most favorite thing (behind duck tape). Easy to apply, easy to modify with a razor knife. Damned near permanent but can be removed with some patience and a sharp knife.

    Amazon carries it.

    Thanks. Has anyone used this? This seems like it would work as well.
