My plan was to cover it with shrink film, however, I had no idea what the melting point of correx might be. So, I covered it first with glass fibre tape, in the hope that would protect it somewhat.
The tape went on as usual and then I decided to try the iron on it at 120°c, as I had done on the wing.
This really does wonders for this tape, really sticking it down well and it makes it very smooth.
Then it was just a case of adding the heat shrink film on top, again at 120°c, which turned out fine.
In the crash, I lost one of the elevon control rods but I couldn't find anything suitable in my box of bits, so I attached the one I had then refitted the receiver, battery pack, switch and balance weight.
I shall have to nip out to my local hobby shop on Saturday to get myself the correct thickness of control rod. Then I can attach the wing to the fuselage and add a couple of little pieces of trim decoration and then the job is a good un!
