Bigfoot motor mount repair

Here we go again:roll eyes:

After getting caught into something in the grass runway it flipped over. I tought it would be ok but the motor mount on this 3D plane is very flimsy so the front plate came off. So far I've clean it up, removed the old glue. I drilled some holes so the glue would make like nails. After I will even out the front and sides and put some carbon fibre , it should be strong and light.

Blast from the past. Another Bigfoot repair thread! I say keep it going until you have an airplane-shaped hunk of epoxy.
