Thanks Guy, I'm in Arizona today and will be throwing my SS over the grand canyon for some video. Getting nervous! I'll post the videos of my trip soon.

is it a fairly clean break, if so then used UHU por glue, and a piece of strapping tape over the joint, i broke about the tip off my wing, about 6 inches long, and glued it back, after 24 hours it was solid, i think hot glue would be to heavy causing unbalance, so give UHU por a try

I've tried repairing a broken in half wing a few times and it always ends in more crashes. I just order a new set they are fairly cheap. Here's where I get mine from. If your just ordering parts they aren't bad but if you have to contact them their customer service bites!

Doggit, can I ask where you get UHU POR from in the UK? I haven't seen any in DIY shops yet. Is it LHS only?

Oh I didn't know BH had a clear canopy... I might have to get one of those to retro-fit my FPV canopy with a clear canopy .

unfortunately, the wing broke into 3 parts. one of them is crooked badly .. i will take a pic tomorrow.

maybe i can make some new part of a shaped gorila glue ...
the CF rod is not damaged ! surprisingly ..

here is a pic of my plane few minutes before the crash.

I have not yet check what happened.
My guess ... the impact moved thing inside the fuselage. One (or more) of the connectors disconnected.
