Opened up the wing on the Turbo Raven this morning before work. Damage isn't as bad as I thought. For the most part should be able to just press stuff back together and wick in some thin CA. Maybe a few bits of cross grained balsa in key areas. I see no reason this plane won't fly again next week some time.

Raven will go back in the air today. Fuse was simple. Just remove the busted wheel pants and then just wick a bunch of thin CA in the cracked formers before installing electronics. Added a little wood filler to the crushed balsa on the wing before sanding smooth. I like this filler as it goes on pink and when it dries its a wood color. Finally stick the covering back down. I didn't have the proper color blue to cover the seam but oh well. It's on the bottom anyways.

You made quick work of that one.
