Repair, Repair, and Repair

Hey fellows,Does anyone know where I can buy a video that shows how to repair rc plane structure. I have a few planes "hanger 9 mustang pts mk" setting around from a crash (fuselage broke in half)., and I would like to repair them. Thanks

Unless it's a kit where you have full size drawings of each piece, the easiest way is to start by carefully peeling back the covering. You basically want to unbuild it and get to the main structure pieces. Once you get the broken pieces out, fit them back together as tight as possible and trace them out onto a piece of paper. Use this as a pattern to make the new pieces. When cutting notches into the new pieces, file or sand a little at a time then fit together until you get the right fit. Once you get the structure back together and it's squared up, recover and get her in the air.

Good Luck,
