Clay,

Mike Mauer fixed a cut in a Polaris wing with "foaming" Gorilla glue. It looks like it is a "foam filling" technique. (Not sure.)

Here is the link: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...528823&page=60

But weight might be a problem since tail weight is so important.

Lowest weight possible is a goal of the fix. I considered cutting out a wedge of the elevator and replacing it with some blue foam. I'll check in to the Gorilla glue.

Thanks Tom.

Also, if anyone has a spare I could buy, let me know.

Mix a lot of micro balloons to a really thick paste. Fill the hole and redrill for the peg. you'll hardly notice any weight gain, and it makes a great hard point!

The Gorilla Glue is too soft and pliable for that stab repair. I would lean toward the foam cutout & replace method, sand to match airfoil, create a hard point for the pin, and light glass over it all. Shouldn't add hardly any measurable weight as you are only replacing what was already there.

I am just curious if the doc put anything "special" in there to enhance performance?

Yes.

Everytime someone pisses him off, the middle finger automatically raises . No longer any need to go to the brain to respond.

And he'll get another 20ft on launch......
