I lay the depron on a flat surface and then put the damp paper towel on top of it. I use the iron to lightly steam press the depron. It usually takes a couple of passes to remove the wrinkle or bend. The steam seems to make the dents puff back up very close to the original thickness of the foam. I keep the iron set about medium or maybe higher and carefuly check the foam after each pass. I do it the same for warped parts, but after I iron them with the damp towel I put a flat surface on top of the warped part and let it cool. So far I've been able to take out some pretty severe warps and wrinkles. I found this method of repair on another RC Groups thread, but I don't remember which one or I'd give credit to the original poster.
I've taken the liberty of copying this gem over to "best build tips" sticky in "builders workshop", hope it's okay Michael! A magic trick this good shouldn't get lost...just tried it on a pretty beat up (creased, warped,bent, indented) Breeze Pro kit I received, crushed by the USPS monkeys. Very impressive results, made an unbuildable kit usable again. Thanks!
