poor guy with the iPad. A pleasant few minutes of watching planes ruined.

Jim is right, a pic will help, is it kinked, or just a gradual curve?
If it is a gradual bend, you will have to over-bend it to get it to be straight after the tension is left off.
When bending it, you do not want to crush the tube into an oval shape. a hardwood dowel up the middle of the tube is the best way to go... using a copper pipe up the middle is a bad idea... both will go oval together. You might want to sand the dowel down to as close of an exact size as possible.... mounting the dowel in a large chuck and 60 grit paper will let you remove stock fairly quickly and evenly... hopefully you know someone with a woodworking lathe, that's the best tool for the job...
email the manufacturer.... you can usually get spare parts from most of them.....I'd prefer to take care of it myself rather than go through the hassle and expense of purchasing replacement parts, if possible.
So nice to spend someone else's money.

Me...I shoot in JPEG. Do you have to shoot RAW?
