Fly Fly wheels fix
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
The fly fly wheels have a tendency to separate and sometimes the hub will crack around the axle shaft (they do after a few of my landings). First glue in brass tubing to make the bearing surface last. Add 3 sets of small nuts and bolts to hold the two hub halves together. Rough up the inner hub area and fill with 5 minute epoxy. The resulting wheel gains a few grams of weight but will now hold together for less than perfect landings. A little silver paint and they look decent.
Zen thinking * It's rebuildable till it fits back in the box. **
