Aight. I'm being lazy, and still need to install the MiniG and put the stubz on it, but I should be out in a while. If not, I got roped into some sort of boyfriend duty.

The epoxy is very solid and agreed that it is fuel proof. It's the union of cf and epoxy that I have seen cause the problem. It wicks in between them and will eventually break the bond. The theory I have based the cf+jb weld upon is metallic to metallic bonds much better. It will also be broken down the same way buy the heli will be in a landfill years before that will happen. A little heat to excite the cf after applying the jb works well for a little more insurance.

I meant to do that!!!

Isn't it epoxy that is the adhesive for carbon fiber?

What you use is down to the nature of the repair. As well as all the above, a method I've used is with raw carbon fibre strands wrapped around the broke bit; then use thin CA which wicks in exceedingly well. Most important however is to ensure that all surfaces are absolutely clean (use alcohol) and roughed up a little.
