Heck no!

You don't want to go gluing broken rotor blades back together, especially with JB Weld.

CA is much stronger for repairing small cracks in fiberglass and plastic frames. JB is great for some things (especially when gluing dissimilar materials or filling big holes) but it doesn't hold for everything.

Rotor blades undergo a massive amount of stress. Having one disintigrate or depart the heli at speed is very dangerous. This is one part best replaced when damaged.

I agree with Leif. A broken blade is just that, BROKEN. Replace it with a new one and keep your heli happy. I have a trex and a shogun, if the blades are just damaged I still fly them. If they fly fine I keep them, if the vib in any way I bin them. If they break I toss them.

Thanks

I KNEW I was going to get blasted on the tail blade question.

So with that in mind I will kill it before this thread becomes out of hand. I have sucessfully done it as an experiment with heli held down knowing this would submit it to higher stress. (had it failed nothing else would have happened other than blade separating at glue joint, since it was a controlled experiment) So off to edit thread and wait for answer on original question. Thanks.

Helis in general ARE dangerous. Have yet to come across an instruction manual where it does not read "THIS IS NOT A TOY!.

Is there any thing better then JB weld
First of all do not glue blades please due to saftey reasons. There is a glue called AIR EPOXY used by jet guys. expensive but it blows away JB weld and CA trash. Go on the BVM jets website and you will find it there.

You definitely fit the description of a "maricon".

Search that one.

first impressions?
Figured...(but you cared enought to answer...mua) so much for practicing what you preach.

I guess the only way to shake you off is to start the questions with "after doing a search..." Perhaps then you can come up with something worthwhile...then again...that's to be seen.

First impression sure counts...and you're score is 2-0 so far.

But keep trying!!!! Maybe someday you will be able to add at least one person to your buddy list.

Face it, you're not popular and for what I have read so far, you've pissed off many folks here at the rate of at least one per day.

With that said and in control of this thread, I will close it AND have the last word. Don't bother with PM's as I deleted the last two you sent without opening them as I REALLY don't care for your worthless opinions.

BTW...your gallery is not impressive...let alone your profile...a "blank" occupation pretty much wraps it all up.

Happy happy joy joy!
