Default 300S foam wing repair

Never had to repair a foam wing core with balsa sheeting before...

I looked at


but I like to find the easiest and quickest way, specific to the damage shown, to get this repaired and still have the plane fly like it should.

I am really not concerned about the looks of the repair, I have all winter to pretty it up, I just want some solution to get back in the air.

Any suggestions?

The damage looks like it would be pretty easy to repair. I would get some pieces of foam, sheet balsa and some aliphatic or epoxy glue. Cut out the damaged areas with a razor saw or exacto blade. Glue in some blocks of foam, shape them to the desired contour and then glue in balsa wood to complete the repair. You can then fill in any seams with filler and recover the area. If the area is just a surface gouge I would probably just fill it in with a lightweight filler. BTW what did you run into??

I agree with Giant Scale, it looks like it should be easy enough to fix the way he described.
