Super Strength Tail Rotor

I saw so many people breaking their Tail Rotor. Here is the fix I did on my Son's PicooZ. He broke both his tail rotors on the first day and was pretty bummed. I managed to catch the second one before the wing came completely torn off.

I just took some 5 minue epoxy and strengthened the area where the wing attaches to the shaft. That's the weakest point. et voila! a super strength tail rotor. I let the epoxy sit for a good 10-12 hours because that's where it reaches max strength (5 minutes to set).

Son's heli has been flying fine now for days with this. I'd have to imagine it is at least 4-5 x as strong as the original.
