My son has two helicopters about 14" long that periodically breaks a skid.
Can someone educate me on products that melt two pieces of plastic together to make a strong bond.

Super glue works sometimes but not always.

it be hard to guess what kind of plastic it would be there are so many different types it could be,  try epxoy or depending on where it breaks i guess you could get a larger diameter tube to help in making it a bit stronger

Wayne,

For super strong bonds, I use Marine Epoxy. Has a long work time to get things into position and is indestructible. It's what I used to glue the two halves of the tank trailer I made. I have put lots of weight on this trailer and not so much as a bit of flex.

Available at Canadian Tire.

Hey Wayne,

I assume the tube is solid. Why not drill small hole in each piece and put a metal shaft in end and then use either crazy glue or 2 part epoxy. Won't break then! I use this idea on everything from figures to small bits on the tanks.

there is something that you can get at any auto parts store call plastic welder. it is a 2 part epoxy but man that stuff is awesome. i used it to repair a pool strainer that was being crushed from my friends pump (since she bought one that was to big for her pool). she was able to use it for months before she was able to buy a new strainer.
