I know this is mainly for electric power but I have a general question on rc planes.
I have a Thunder Tiger 40 trainer. The ribs on the wing and fuse are covered with a thin plastic like wrap.
I had a crash today and punctured a hole in the top of the wing, how do I go about repairing this?
Thanks for all your help in advance.

Tape will fix minor holes, but if you tear a wing panel you will need to simply replace it with the appropriate covering. Your 40-size plane is probably covered in something like Monokote, so go down to your LHS and get a roll of the same stuff in the correct color. Then you can remove the damaged material between the ribs and iron on a new panel to fit (allowing 1/4" or so overlap for sealing). You'll hardly notice the seams!
