Hey gang-

As discussed in an earlier thread, , my 3" PE gladiator had a motor failure of some sort. Now it has become time to repair or scrap the little bugger. I have attached on a photo of the damage. Normally I would just splice on a new chunk of airframe, but the is no room to stick a coupler in since there is practically no tube between the top of the fins and the bottom of the nose cone.

Any suggestions? I really love the design of this kit and would hate to scrap it after only a single cato'd flight.
Excellent suggestion, Dan! Thank you for the referance. Whereas I read through Info Central extensively when I started into high power, I often forget to look there for answers now.
