UMX P-51D repair - is it worth it?

This is the result of my encounter with a hawk. Those are claw and beak markings!
Do you guys think it makes sense to try to repair it (foam safe CA and, perhaps, a few carbon fiber strips or thin tubes here and there)? Or should I just get myself a new fuselage? Mechanically it seems to be ok, although the elevator servo may be jammed (that's why I couldn't recover, I think). I haven't disassembled it yet, hope it's just something holding the linkage.

Full video of the encounter is here:

That’s repairable, or check out Micro Aces, they do airframes of some awesome WW1 planes that take the UMX internals.

Thanks! My biggest concern is the torn off nose. The foam is ripped and squished. I don't mind additional nose weight - it was a touch tail heavy, despite the battery being as far forward as it could. Here's another shot.

Micro Aces - do I just transplant the internals onto a new airframe?
