Flyboy, I would order a new wing AND fix the old one. I would use a couple of bamboo toothpicks and CA (foam safe) them into the fuse side first. Then after the CA sets, dry fit the right piece of wing. When everything matches up, then use CA and a little bit of TP (Toilet Paper) if not a perfect match. The only caution here is that CA takes a long time to set on the inside of the foam, so once you get everything aligned let it cure at least overnight. You may also want to put some clear tape across the break. The weight of the CA and toothpicks should not significantly affect the balance. If it breaks, then you will have a new wing (previously ordered) to replace. I would bet the repair would last for weeks or more as long as you don't try flying into another object! Also, if you replace the wing, I would put a clear tape spar on the bottom of the wing. Just be careful when applying so that you don't tape a twist or bend into the wing. Good luck!
