Broke the tail off in front of the rudder the other week at another clubs field. They had a lawn for a strip but it was a bit long.

On investigation it was a significant weak point with no glue joining the rudder piece to the fuz so only the thin sidewalls kept it together. I'm surprised it hadn't broken before this.

So I completely cut it off, removed the paint, roughed up the foam ends and glued with contact cement. Not CA, epoxy, or a rubber glue. 30mins until touch dry and 12hr full clued. Should forever now.
