Point the nose of the canopy all the way down to the ground. Open the rear of the canopy so that it clears the linkages and put the front on with the nose down. Once you get it past the linkages, then slip it into place. It takes a little practice but I got good at it when I moved my lipos under the canopy.........Ron

i always found it useful to plug in the top holes first...the bottom then aligns itself.

I put a little bit of lube on the canopy mounts, makes it easier for the canopy to on/off

A combo of the last 3 here. My canopy is cut to allow my 6S to be mounted further forward on an extended battery tray. So I cut the bottom of the canopy out. I put the hook on the top posts first and I also lube the rubbers a little.

Should've bought a sim. Got a bucket of used blades!

Yes, Silicone spray or a synthetic grease (use only synthetic lubricants on rubber or plastics) on the rubber make them slip very easily
