I don't use tape for repairs, some do. Too heavy.
Need an appropriate glue for the mylar patch, thinned spray glue in a bottle works. A small brush to apply. In a pinch saliva works, brush is still handy.
Insta-set is real handy to set the CA NOW during a contest. Speeds the repair.
Micro-precision superglue applicator so you can use SMALL amounts of CA for the repair. Two reasons, keep the weight down (ALWAYS important) and keep the mess down. A full drop of CA can run everywhere gluing the plane to everything, including you.
Ruler to check measurements.

But I'm really positive I built to specs- building is certainly my strong point. But regardless now I'm out, this is my only plane, and States is this Saturday. What can I do?
