 General repair tips

Roprey are designed to be both soft enough to be safe for the falcon, and ridged enough to fly well in the wind. Although they are sturdy aircraft, with regular use your Roprey will start to show some war wounds. However, much more damage is caused by pilot error than by the falcon. Structural damage is the most common cause for repair.

Included with each model is a tube of super glue and a spray can of accelerator. This glue is fantastic for repairs in the field. The bond is very quick and durable. This glue works best on foam when repairing breaks in the wings and the tail.

To fix a repair using the super glue, first apply a small amount of glue to the two pieces to be bonded. Press them together and wipe away any excess. It’s best to use latex gloves for this if you can. Take the two pieces apart and spray the accelerator directly onto the glue. You now have around 10 seconds before the glue is completely dried, so put the pieces back together straight away! The glue can get hot once activated, so avoid touching it wherever possible. If you find you’ve used too much glue and it’s escaped the crack and dried on the outside, you can normally scratch it off.

For some repairs, hot glue from a glue gun is the most suitable option. Hot glue provides a more flexible join and is best used for securing the electrical components, such as servos and EDFs, in place.
