I purchased the set and it's a must have.

I had a tree move infront of my 5 meter fashionista and repairing it with the techniques in the videos is making this an easy and smooth job. When I brought my glider home after the crash I really didn't have a clue how to go about the job and had placed my glider on the sidelines. I figured how to go about it with the videos and I'll be flying it sooner than I thought.

Thanks Paul for making this -- it's kind of having an experienced builder live in your basement

I bought vol. 1, and have been repairing moldies for years now, but this DVD taught me that little extra something to produce a better repair.

Like all RCA DVDs you really do learn something new, and I hunger for all of Paul's new releases. I just have to put in my order for vol. 2 now (when I get my act together ;-) )

Great productions

My repair jobs have reduced several beautiful and expensive sailplanes to hideously deformed monsters that never fly straight.

I should have got both of Paul's repair DVD's.

With these two videos you can tackle just about any wreck repair and finish it like a pro. You see the two planes in pieces (trash can bound) at the start of the preview, and then you see them flying again at the end.

Post any question here or PM me.

Been flying these two heavily damaged and then repaired models (Icon 2 & Onyx JW E) a lot this summer and here is a short video clip of them flying at one of my local fields. This footage was shot as the final sequence for the Glider Repair Lab 2 showing the final results of the completed repairs and showing the planes actually flying again.

Thanks to all you guys who have ordered both Repair DVDs!

Enjoy the video, its the second video on the page:
