Hi, I have just had a less than perfect landing with my HobbyKing Voltiguer,....yes I know , ..a bad approach often leads to a bad landing!....and the live hinge has split on the right side of the elevator.

I am thinking of repairing it in the following way as the split is so clean. UHU Por for the hinge it'self and following this with a length of 'Blenderm' tape on both sides of the hinge.

I used this method on the rudder of my 'Wargo Yak' when it failed on the building board. I throw this Yak around like mad and the repair has stayed put for a whole season with no sign of failing.

I would like your views on this please.

regards

Mike
