    Good evening everyone. I browsed the forums and didn't see anyone with a similar crack that I have, and was hoping some of you with more experience could advise me. I mainly film weddings with my q500 4k, as a hobby I do lakes and mountains when I hike. Long story short, sudden down pour shooting wedding, drone well 10ft, clipped tree, fell 100ft :( Fixed camera, replaced blades. It flies straight, camera shoots true and its stable, but im worried it may break?

    In pictures, you can see how black portion is cracked, but top is not. Where I have tape, is where it bowed a little and I did that to strengthen just in case. Glue does nothing, I was thinking of taping the joint like you do a swollen ankle, and do it to all 4 sides to keep weight balanced, or should I not worry?

    Just coat the outside of the crack, or try and get a little between the crack?

    yes , over lap the crack and it wont hurt to get it in the crack , make sure the area is clean . J B works real good , i have used it on plastic and metal , when it sets you can sand it also , it's like steel , it's the best , i buy the large tubes .
