The Glider Repair Lab series has been so popular that my fans have demanded I make a third repair techniques program, and so I did, it's now available on a 2 hour information-packed DVD for only $24.95. We're also offering a great deal on all three Glider Repair Lab DVDs together for only $49.95. Click here to order the three DVD set.


This new 2 hour program features a series tutorials covering common repairs problems on a variety of wings and fuselages constructed with various materials and methods. You'll learn a bunch of new and valuable techniques that will help you to repair your damaged glider airframe and get it flying with minimal cost and effort.

I first attempt to fix a near-fatal broken main spar on a beautiful (and really expensive) Muller Egida F3J wing with some slick orthopedic surgery done without anesthesia. The patient lived and with some red paint therapy, will be flying again soon. You will learn all the steps required for main spar repairs and you'll get to see the disgusting internal guts of a moulded wing and the deceivingly easy way to repair even the most grave damage.

Next up is the repair of a state-of the-art fin set of an Xplorer 2.0 damaged in a launching accident. The fins are foam core with a spread-tow skin which makes repairs challenging. I teach you a new method for fixing skin delaminations with minimal surface damage with tape and mould release and show you how I fixed a torn hard point in the elevator fin with minimal weight increase.

The Pulsar series of gliders are really popular but repairing the truly composite built-up wings has been a bit of a black art. A friend donated a Pulsar 4 built-up D-box center section which had some nasty flutter damage to the ribs, rear drag spar, and D-box leading edge for this repair lab. I'll teach you you how to fabricate some new ribs, reattach the drag spar system, and fix the carbon d-box with a new and easy to apply technique I came up with that saved this expensive wing from the scrap heap.

I'm restoring this Icon 2 F3J fuselage for next season, and I demonstrated how I repaired the badly broken rear fuselage in the first Glider Repair Lab. In this program, I finish the repairs by fixing the sheared off front nose area with a lost-foam technique where you mould a new nose with blue foam, glass over the carved form, and then melt out the foam leaving the glass shell in the perfect nose shape. This is a very useful technique for repairing those impossible to replicate parts of nose cones, fuses, and other shapes.

To finish this intense training session, I teach you some ways to fix a broken bagged foam-core carbon-skinned slope plane wing with custom made splints. The wing being brought back from the dead is from a rare CR Contender wingeron slope speedster, so no replacement parts are available, so a professional restoration is the only way this plane is ever going to fly again. Lots of planes still have foam core wings, and the repair techniques you'll learn can be applied to foam core wing with skins of balsa, glass, obeichi, or carbon. Just about any wing can be fixed using the simple yet effective techniques I demonstrate for you.
