Wanted: 3DHS 104" Slick 540 Canopy

Did a PopTop and it worked, popped my canopy off and it was trashed. Bought the plane used and didn't realise the front locking pins were too short, and under stress came out.

Tried e-mailing Extreme Flight, the new owners of 3D Hobby Shop, but got no response. Also posted in Accessories area of FG, but trying to cover all the bases.

Thanks for reading.
Joe V.

I fabricated mine using a canopy for a 40% Carden Edge from DeeForce.
Cut 3 lite ply formers , add stringers, sheeting, and cover with Ultracote. I painted some of the areas as you can see in pictures

Thank you for the offer, but it won't work. I've had a local guy compare them. I didn't realize that there were responses to the ad, apparently there are no alerts when someone ads to discussions, so didn't know there were responses, but thank you again.

Thanks for the advice! I will check out DeeForce. I'm not sure I have the skills to accomplish the task, but have a builder that does.

Thanks again.

I contacted a friend and builder and he asked if I could get a photo or two of your canopy. Says it might work...

Thanks.

What would you want for it if it'll work?
