Repair Assitance - Tips or Tricks

G'day Y'all

Well I recently received My very first PLANE, Yes it's used But it's mine. I was quite disappointed when I received the plane since it was advertised in EXCELLENT condition and it was far from it.

I am trying to figure out the best way to repair the ailerons. As the picture depicts they are not cracked all the way through thus wondering if I should attempt a repair. If I do repair it what be the best method.

looking forward to your replies

Re: Repair Assitance - Tips or Tricks

Hi Juice,

By the looks of it, it should be a relatively easy repair. However, I would suggest you find another local modeller to give you some guidence while doing the repair.

There are lots of modellers close to you and it should be easy to make contact, in fact, one may contact you from this site. If they don't, go to the local hoppy shop and ask for the contact information of a nearby club. Modellers are very friendly, and always willing to help.

Once you make contact, they will not only be able to help you with the repair, and have the necessary glues etc., and show you the repair procedure, but they can also help you to learn to fly.

You'll find the hobby very challenging and very rewarding, you'll also make many new friends.

Re: Repair Assitance - Tips or Tricks

CA hinges and foam safe CA would work fine. Get some kicker/ accelerator while your at it. The foam safe stuff needs a little help in hardening. It's good for many other types of repairs too. I normally use hot glue hinges on something like that but it's not so pretty. Cut it off altogether and clean up the edges and go to it.Looks like it might be a Corsair.

Re: Repair Assitance - Tips or Tricks

I would go with what flypaper says too. Cut them off, trim up nicely, and reattach with hinges.

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.

Re: Repair Assitance - Tips or Tricks

I would go along with Wayne's advice. There is a club in Dartmouth, google HEFA.
They would be helpful.
