Default Rebuilding a lite ply fuse

How bad is it?

If its a relatively clean break... double it inside with somehard balsa 1/4 inch triangular stock in all 4 corners, 2 inch lon pieces (one inch extension each side of break) and glue it all up with yellow glue, clamping firmly.

shouldn't need more than 1/2 oz noseweight to compensate.


If its like mine... fuselage kit. I shattered from LE to 6 in aft of TE.. LOTS of little toothpicks.

I hate going dead-stick when trying low level aerobatics... Vertical climb from touch-n-go and engine died just as I got into the vertical line. Appx 35 ft up... needed appx 45 to recover from the attitude... Not enough warning to kick rudder... it tailslid 1/2 the way down. Ugly.
