Made the second landing today and seemed to be average in quality. Inboard gear mount broke free from root rib. Anyone else have this issue? I'm interested to see how others may have performed repair/redesign/strengthening of this area.
Can you send pictures of the structure? Is this one honeycomb?

Congrats Mario!

Mine was not honeycomb. I'm sorry I don't have pics. I recommend adding alum angle and tie the root rib to the gear mount rails. I used hysol and 4-40 screws.

How is this F86 doing after FEJ changed to honeycomb production? Solid or good or any failures?

I saw one shed parts from the stab and make it back and another one do the same and destroy itself. I have not seen one in the U.S. since then, which was what, 2 or 3 years ago, or was it 4 years ago...
