A little hot water should fix that.

I'd hate to see your idea of an not so successful flight...

No problem, like they said a little hot water and a glue gun and it will look as good as mine.
I've noticed that the more you fix a B1.1 the more squishy they get and the more they resist crash damage. Or I can't tell new crash damage from old.

And after about 20 minutes of hot glue it's ready to resume the wind wars. Bixler 1.1s are tough birds. After you get past the mental hangup that a wind plane has to look good it gets real fun and horsepower trumps aerodynamics every time.
