snapped my lite stick wing

So I foolishly propped my Lite Stick wings against a cabinet temporarily..Well wouldn't ya know it I dropped a wooden snake on it(yes a wooden snake)and SNAP it went right in half..Only held together by the red "skin" and the cross decal..I figgered I would go buy a new kit and keep the extra parts but tried to tape it and voila it went back together. Took it to the park to test it..no difference .....Tape rules and so do Lite Sticks

If you want the repaired wing to be more durable, forget the tape and use epoxy instead. I did fix broken wing of Pfalz IIID using small amount of epoxy, and it's now better than new.

Just use the glue that came with the kit and a strip of tape over the break. I have broken several sets of wings and they fix up quite nicely with the supplied glue and some tape...
