Is there a tried and true technique for repairing Carbon Fiber. i.e. glue types or anything like that?

it kind of depends what you want to repair - is that wing skin or rod or tube or else? and is it load bearing (spar)? there is no real way to 'glue back' a carbon fibre skin or rod, you will need to glue a fabric patch of some sort around the break to re establish the continuity of the fibres if they have been sectioned
