Busted Frame

Is super glue adequate for repairing a carbon fiber frame :thinking:

I would say not, because you’ll probably get jello and weird resonances even if it stays together. Frames are pretty cheap though…


ok, its only cracked if that makes a difference ???

If you do use super glue I use something with low viscosity along with some kicker spray so it bond’s quickly. I’ve also used baking soda as a hardener but be careful as this produces an exothermic reaction which is hot enough to melt some plastics.

Yah I went for it, only had a crack in it so bodged it back together :sunglasses:

Made some pretty big mods to the protek, Ill put some pics up later but involved a Dremel :astonished:


Well took it out for a test flight and found I have some real problems :slightly_frowning_face:

One of the props doesn’t start up correct as it kind of stutters and once up it seems to have a mind of its own…

Is there any diagnostic in Betaflight I can run it through ?? Im thinking the crash did more damage than I first thought !!

Sorry about pic quality still getting use to my insta360 :grimacing:

Maybe you damaged a motor wire when you broke the frame? Stuttering is usually 1 bad wire of 3 to the motor.

Or zip it if under 50mb. What motors do you need?


Thats a great way to share a video here! :clap:

I had a similar issue on my 2.5inch toothpick and like @notveryprettyboy said I had a loose wire on the motor. I just replaced the motor and away it went :+1:t2:
