Default Accidentally Poked Hole in CompArf Wing

I was drilling in the servo arm bay of my comparf extra 2.6M and accidentally poked my drill bit all the way through the top of the wing (from the bottom).

What's the best way to patch this? Microbubbles and epoxy and sand smooth?

Buszz:

Sort of depends on the size of the hole? If you can get a small piece of 1/16 backing inside, would be best. Then use 5 min.epoxie or sim., fill the hole area, scrape off excess with playing card, and remove any excess with alchol and Q tip, cover with wax paper and let cure. Toutch up with kids crayon when well set. If you get a little dimple in the repair, simply add another light coat of epoxie and repeat process. You can add some ballons if needed, or wanted. ENJOY

Epoxy and micro-ballons mix.

Fill the hole and cover with a piece of clear plastic tape (to make sure there are no bubbles). Let it cure with the tape on the underside of the wing so it forms over the hole inside the wing.
