DF if the firewall is still good around the edges I would just cut a piece of ply to fit behind the current one and pull the blind nuts out and then glue solid one in behind the cracked one and keep flying!

I'm about to do the second MB repair on my 51 slick. Had a mid-air today.

Ok, seriously, how far out is a 50cc bigfoot? Is it even on the radar or are we only talking about 30cc this year?

i glued mine before doing anything. poushed it back as good as i could and glued it together

then used ca debonder to get it out and traced it on a new piece of ply and cut a new one

it is a really simple job

i am just hoping for an electric optioned bigfoot that will fly on 6s at the most, though something in the 50" category would be awesome

How big will a 30cc bigfoot be? Scale Decathlons and Cubs seem to be 90-100" wingspan on a 30cc motor, although I assume bigfoot's performance will be *slightly* higher than those.

I don't know why, but I really want a bigfoot on floats, even though I live in the desert. 3d'ing a float plane would be awesome.
