But I already have a model aircraft.........

And an 8 minute video? from the man who said anything over 90 seconds is too much....???

Though yes, I am a little bit tempted.....

Thanks for the info

Well, I already made the "any wing can be splitted"-experience with my Mini-Cessna. Tried to find out may there was a carbon fiber rod inside it.. Tried to flex the wing a little -> "whoops". Had 2 parts -- evidently there was no carbon fiber rod in it

taile mod

i bought the nylon bolt and screw at home depot. i made the hole in the tail fin so the nuts can fit. i used hot glue to secure the bolt and I used ca on top of all around. on my first flight i also put double side tape just in case but now i remove the tape and it works great whitout it.

Gorilla Glue will make wonders for such breaks. It expands and fills the gap with a foam very similar to the original one, then you need to trim the excess.

If there were directions, they'd be, "put this in the right place in the right way." Seriously, it looks like a binding plug.
