So I just spent the better part of 9 hours taking out the servos on my AMR. Turns out that I had a bit too much CA in the elevator and rudder servo mounting bits and I had stuck the servos in. After about 6 hours of patience with debonder, acetone, dental floss and a knife, I finally got the rudder servo out without damaging the wood.
The elevator servo, however...
Any tips for repair? I have an idea of what I want to do (cut out some 2mm birch ply, jigsaw puzzle the tab back, glue the ply and the tab with epoxy, iron extra covering film I have in my bag on), but I thought I'd poll the balsa builders. I'm relatively new to balsa.
Right now I'm just waiting for all the stuff that soaked in the balsa to evaporate.
