    Nothing's beyond Krazy Glue.

    Including fingers, so be careful. :)  Good luck!

    Buy a non conehead seeker junker and swap out the part. The pin removal is tricky but it's not a huge repair.

    what brand of glue? Everything i've ever used falls apart

    and if i were to swap the part, id need to repaint it-not capable at this time to paint or knock out a pin

    Ebay:
    Does krazy glue have a bad chemical reaction to plastic ? I havnt used it in forever but, I know super gluing TF back in the day would always result in a nasty white residue spreading from the application point. For me anyway..

    Even if you do a swap, you might not strictly need to worry about the color. That part isn't really very noticeable in either mode. Personally I would recommend a swap over gluing. However, getting the pin out will probably be tough.

    Krazy Glue, as stated. That's a brand, not just a catch-all term.

    I used it to fix Torca's GPS-ridden tail, which has held ever since (3-4 years). Also just used it to fix Headrobots Hothead.

    if glue doesn't work, just pick up a cheap seeker from ebay then repaint and swap the broken part.
