I have searched the web without success. Many thanks.
Yes this is one of the weak spots on the plane. When it happened to me, I glued it back together with JBWeld. After the glue was hardened, I added a piece of bubble pack plastic as a "scab" to make it stronger. I roughened up the surfaces before gluing the scab on. It has stayed together and even with a few rough landings, it's still good.
