I need help/advice fixing a airplane fuse...
Buddy give this to me today.Its a 72mhz flyzone cessna 182 skylane and the fuse needs repaired or replaced,wanna repair it if I can..She forsure needs a new cowl,prop and motor (shaft is bent) .
I took pics of the damage on the fuse and main wing..Can these be fixed and if so,what do I need?Right now im trying super glue and put a strip of duct tape on it to hold it tight until the super glue drys..Not sure if its going to be a strong fix useing super glue??I know a few airplane guys said they use some type of "foam glue" but I have no ideal what its called or if its stronger than super glue ?Can anyone help me out with this please?Heres pics of the plane and damage..

Also,
This will be my first plane so I have no ideal if the damage is too bad so if it is,I can buy a fuse..Just kinda broke and would like a cheap fix but its winter and can save up for the fuse/other parts by summer..

My method : It's in the adhesive / bit of technique
You are going to want to find White Gorilla Glue: Foaming Expansion Type

It's a moisture activated foaming polyurethane { Kmart } $6.00

Perf the fractured edge side wall's with a Pin. Both edges

Mask either side of the cracks as close as you can with blue painter's tape.

Put the adhesive in the fractures and PIN it together -
Similar to toe nailing a wall framing - X cross pin's thru the joint.

The glue will foam out & let it cure.

Pull the pin's -

Razor off the excess that foamed out of the crack's and remove the tape.

Yup !

It fill's void's great too
If your motor shaft is replaceable - some times the mmm is the same diameter as the wire used in fly bar's -- if you have any bent one's and a way to measure them.

You can buy all the parts you need from tower hobbys.

But from the looks of it you can buy a new kit cheaper.

Go to Walmart, go to the sewing/fabrics section and look for Quick Grip. It is in a yellow/green tube. We use it to assemble and repair our 3D foamies. That stuff is awesome, cures fast and the repair will never fail. I always have a tube with me at the field since we do full contact combat with our foamies we can repair the carnage and be flying again. Just spread the damage, squeeze some in the gap and tape or hold it tight and it will set up in a few minutes and be ready to fly in about 20 minutes.

That's good to know Jason. I've got a brand new foamie I just built and about to build a second that I'm sure to bash a lot....
