EXTREMEFLIGHT 48in EDGE 540 repair
Sharing a repair to the gear of my friend's EF edge 540 48".
Removed gear an all damage pieces.
Used broken gear plate as a template to cut another from 1/8" 6ply birch
plywood. The mounting bolts and nutplate removed to be reused.
Made up new half bulkheads using the broken pieces as guides.
Tested the fit of the newly constructed pieces.
Assembled using 30min epoxy.
Installed the gear and its nutplates, added the filler balsa stock salvaged from the damaged gear plate and monokoted to match.
Happy Holidays to all.
