I had a windy day ~hard landing~ with my hawk dlg 1m, pushed back to a tree behind me. The wing took a 15mm dent on the leading edge.
The rohacell foam/carboline take every small incident and keep it...
- cut properly the damaged part of the wing rohacell and carboline
- prepare a sanded foam piece to fit the hole exactly
- surround the area with the thinner tape (i took kapton tape) 5mm border around the area.
- cut a piece of carboline the size of the new foam area with a 2-3 mm border.
- sand the 5mm border of the wing carboline, between the tape and the new foam.
- prepare the resin (I took hyperflight ZAP PT41, slow)
- lightly resin the border of the foam, fit the foam
- lightly resin the surface of the foam and the wing carboline
- fit the new carboline piece, should to be wet with resin
- lightly add resin over the carboline just to saturate.
- Cut a piece of lamination film (or any non epoxy sticky film) to overlap the area and the kapton tape. remove air bubbles. Fix it with tape.
Let it cure and remove everything.
The surface have the same finish and the repair is nearly seamless. I added 0.3g.

I used the sample to repair a seam that had opened on the rear end of my 2m Typhoon fuselage following a heavy landing. The repair was made easy with the backing hold the carbon in place. Simply add a thin layer of epoxy to the fuselage place the carbon face down gently rub the cloth backing to ensure adhesion and peel back the backing cloth to expose the carbon. couldn't have been easier. Great product and as usual first class service from the Hyperflight team.

Bought to repair the tail end of my DLG fuselage cracks. Really easy to use, packaging for this product was excellent and the peel ply backing came in really helpful to strap down the material when being applied (in my case). Eager to use a larger quantity now with some vac bagging.

I used an off cut of this material for stiffening the balsa leading edges and tips of a tailplane and fin. I used thinned epoxy to glue the material to the basa. Not difficult to use and the stiffening was quite dramatic.
