Sticky Strong for Thin and Light!,
This review is from: Parrot AR.Drone Adhesive Kit (Accessory)
If you have the AR Drone, this tape is a MUST! Best $6 you will ever spend. I, like many AR n00b pilots, while playing indoors tend to hit and run into things. I cracked one of the rings on the indoor hull, I tried masking tape, I tried Scotch tape, I tried Super Glue, and I tried regular Elmer's glue - none of those worked. So I ordered this tape - watched the videos on the Parrot Support web site, and then used the tape - WOW - very sticky and strong and holds well. Beats paying $30 for a new hull. :-) Plus you do not have to use a lot of tape for each fix, so you WILL get your money's worth out of this purchase.

ONE WORD PEOPLE... GORILLA GLUE - ALL PURPOSE BABY!!! HARD AS A ROCK AND LIGHT AS A FEATHER...the foaming aspect of this is re-donkulously the ultimate way to repair your HULL ladiez... I have over 30 repairs to the INDOOR HULL which I have been using OUTDOORS and thus crashed is a lot...this HULL weighed in at 66 grams on a 'postal' scale and after a month of crashes from wind gusts and 'guest' pilots and of course my own learning curve I have re-weighed it and it came in at 72 grams... hmmmmmmm... 6 grams added after over 30 repairs later including 8-10 full HULL cracks in halves and at least 20 'CHUNKS' of it that were completely removed when forced into something as fairly high speed. I would only guess here but even at the very very low price of $6 bucks for these adheasive they are a lot heavier (per repair exponentially heavier) and of couse have no maluability to get INTO THE crannies of the breaks that do happen because HELLO...IT'S FOAM!!! and that's exactly what the Gorilla glue does...it FOAMS at the mouth to fix your air-ride and check out your neighbors swimming pool 'recon' machine...*grin* Have a great day and your welcome... -KiRbYdOoO

I have used black gaffers tape and that seems to be working quite well, strong and and adheres well.

Gaff outstanding for just about anything actually but unless you plan on covering the entire hull...eventually with it so might as well do it from the get go...it's going to be a lot more weight no matter how thin your tape is and how easily it is to remove...also at 35-40 bucks a ROLL still not the BEST solution but great...if you've already got it and don't want to invest 5 bucks in a lifetime of featherlight and much more of a permanent FIX! GORILLA GLUE...don't sniff it up you SKULL......use it on your A.R. DRONE v1.0 and v2.0 HULL!!!

This kit is really not much different than clear packing tape. This kit utilizes double sided tape and is intended on the user placing the this tape on the inside of the crack of the broken part. I suggest putting packing tape on the outside across of the broken area. Clear packing tape is just as good and cheaper. If you want a stronger application simply put more layers on. I cannot see anyone spending so much money on this kit when packing tape is under $4
