A new canopy

well, I’ve not posted for a while, but, actually I’ve been busy. But at the beginning of the week, I got my new canopy for the Helicopter. Thanks to Chris who painted it up for me. here’s what it looks like now:

Unfortunately on my first flight with the new canopy, the throttle linkage snapped, and the carbs are designed to spring OPEN! I have no idea why they’re designed this way, but it meant that my rotors that are rated up to 2000rpm were turning closer to 3000rpm, resulting in quite a wobble and it shaking itself to bits. hopefully that is all sorted. Hopefully today I can get it off the floor and throw it around a bit, it does look nice out there!
