Pictures of a repaired Carbon Fiber (CF) frames

I repaired my frame side using CF string and CA, and here is how I did it.

1) Sand both sides of the frame where the CF string is to placed.
2) Using Thick CA, place a think layer of CA on one side of the broken area.
3) Cut length of CF string so it overlapps both sides of the broken are by 1/2 inch.
4) Spanned the string across the broken area.
5) Using a plastic baggie over your finger to smoothed out the CA and CF sting while it drys.
6) Repeated the above steps on the other side of the frame.
7) Go back with thin CA and wet both sides of the broken area to harden it.

So far it seems to be holding and looks like it will be strong enough.well at least to save $22 by not replacing the lower frame set.

Flying maneuvers instructions:
I got to give credit where credit is do, the following files were collected from Spurry's Gallery
At the time I collected them his last post was over 1205 days ago.

ESC Governor modes:
I have been using a stock Align 35 (version 2006) in governor mode without any problems,
but there is a consensus in the heli community that the Align ESC is junk.

Hmm I havent had any major issues, however Im a bit anal when it comes to a smooth flying heli.

Not to flog a dead horse, I will get to the subject at hand. In search for information on
setting up other ESCs I have collected some stuff from other places on the web, which I'm sharing.

First is Trex setup tips and CC35 settings from KaminazRcPilot here on RR:
I copied his file to My Gallery from his on Setting up the T-Rex

Phoenix CC35 settings that was collected form a reply to a POST from
KamikazRcPilot about the CC35 in Governor mode.
Here is a list of the parameter settings for the CC35 in Governor Mode
Side Note, The last info I found on the software was that version 1.55 was the best and to avoid 1.56!

Align ESC Modifications:
The older Align ESC was known for thermally shutting down due to over heating. I came
across this document on Helifreaks that explained how to modify the ESC heatsink to
correct the over heating issue.
I have been flying the older style ESC from day one with this modification and have had
NO issue of over heating.
