There is a learning curve to using a Rotozip. Flat tape & finish....

take a knife and bevel the edge , fill with hot mud use thicker , scrape and tape , then finish . easy repair. by the way the patch of hotmud and tape is stronger than the drywall itself. you just need to use a good 10-12 inch blade to feather it out. dont use a small blade like a 6 inch use 10-12 wide blade for the finish coat anyways.
