Default landing gear patch up...

Every now and then I get landing gear that snaps clean on one of the legs. My solution is to wrap both sides of the break and across it, with thin kevlar thread, then hit that with a drop of thin CA.

It repairs the break, and adds strength to it, so far no re-breaks on the same spot.

I find heat shrink tubing works great for skid repairs
