I did an external wrap for the repairs. 1st a layer of kevlar and topped with two layers of carbon vail. I need tail weight, so the added mass behind the wing is no issue for me.

My Typhoon had a nasty cartwheel when I caught a tip last Summer damaging the fuse in the same place, nearly snapping it, causing the white gel coat to shatter and CF/FG to splinter. I used a section of bicycle tire inner tube to help press the CF tow and FG in place earlier when I added additional CF in the nose for a stronger motor...., and it came in handy when it was time for this fix! 40mm fuselages are a pain in the arse. The Tomcat has to be bigger right?

The front of the Tomcat is pretty wide. However, the F3F fuselage for the Tomcat shares the same wing joiner so, hind the wing is narrow. I think an internal repair is possible but difficult.

I had to make a fuse repair last month on another glider. I still need to work out the cg.
The e-tomcat is larger in front of the wing than the typhoon. However, the typhoon has the rudder and tail servos mounted behind the wing. I like that .
