borked copter

wicked crash!  The carbon fiber foam laminate broke in a place where it had already been weakened by holes.


 I used carbon fiber tow to brace the break, then saturated it with 2 part epoxy.
 electrical tape for compression and to squeeze excess epoxy out.  thanks ben!
When you do it, remember to poke holes in the electrical tape beforehand to allow extra epoxy to get out of the joint.  Too much epoxy makes for a brittle joint.
