Default Take these broken wiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnngs!

Mr. Mister Trojan has Crashed. He hit a stop sign post And broke his wing. .... while landing.

It's a neat crack. ... didn't affect wires all lights controls working fine.
Please see pic.... can I just stick it back without removing wing? It may be less complex btw.

What do I use to stick this epo foam. ..two part epoxy from hd? How much do I apply?

Pls advice or else it'll be a one hit wonder!

Thanks. ....

5 or 30 min epoxy will work great, use sparingly, use gloves I like the Epoxy at harbor freight tools, it works great and low odor, might want to use the 30 min epoxy to give yourself some time to work with the parts, tap, pins, weights will be of help, keep every thing nice and straight while glueing it up

Thanks Chellie...
Did exactly like u said.used thirty minute epoxy. Now I want to know if usually when u glue foam wings are they more strong than before? Do I need to run a CF rod along the wing?.... for safety?

747,
I have made very similar repairs to my PZ Trojan with both epoxy and gorilla glue. As long as you were able to get the epoxy to all of the broken surfaces, No additional bracing is needed.


Funny thread title!
