Repairing Elapor Foam, WLToys Sky King F959

These days there are some cheap but great small models about. Especially amazing value is this Sky King 75cm span electric glider, which comes complete with 2.4 GHz transmitter. I flew it in a heavy wind and it caught a gust and spiralled in. The nose dented. When I got home, I boiled the kettle for a cup of tea and used the hot water to dunk the crushed side of the nose in. The foam on that side expands and "repairs" the injury.

Here it was before the repair:

And here is the repaired nose:
