Anyone could say "Oh, yeah. I would have thought of that". But, truth being truth, I would not have thought of that. I would have done the wooden dowel thing and then I would have epoxied the heck out of it and drilled it the next day. OR, I have about 25 ORIGINAL aluminum fuselages (full length 800mm - no joiner) for the SS and, knowing me, I am sure I would have just replaced it.
So, your is at 3 years and going strong, huh?? Well done.
P.S. I see it worked for the LG, too. I use 3 wire ties for the LG when the front wing mount is too trashed to mount LG. You did good...
