Maiden wet well except on landing I was pushed by a down draft into the runway, bounced back up, gave full power and did a go around. Greased the landing and taxied into the pitts. Noticed the weak mount for the nose LG was busted, this is when I learnt a lesson. NEVER use Hobbyking CA glue. I borrowed somebodies and it all looked ok, went to take off and the whole front nose gear collapsed. The glue had held absolutely nothing together. I have since come home, used my CA and also caked the mount with 30min epoxy. My only drama now is to replaced the motor mount as it broke when the gear collapsed. Anybody got tips on how to access it?
