Hey,

This orange part in my hornet snapped it rests above the orange rod thingy. Could i epoxy glue it or would that not be strong enough? picture of the part is below.

First things first, your pictures didn't upload correctly.
For a general rule of thumb, if the broken thing is a load bearing part then epoxy would only be a temporary fix. I would use a strong epoxy to set the broken piece back in its spot, then reinforce with steel epoxy putty; however, this is only a temporary fix and will break again in the future. If the part is not under any stress from moving, springs, or any force, then a strong 2-part epoxy could work. Anyways, it's hard to give any advice when I don't know exactly what broke... Try re-uploading the pictures.

EDIT: For the epoxies, don't buy one that fully cures within a couple of hours; it won't be strong enough. Get a good one day epoxy or something better.
