Hi guys getting ready for the first flight here before long. Just wondering if there are any issues with the stock canopy mounts. They just dont seem to secure the canopy very well. I guess with the wrap around design of the canopy backwards flying must not create much resistance on the canopy.Please let me know if anyone is having problems.

Thanks....

Are you putting the lower part of the canopy in between the skids and the frame?

Take a couple of pieces of Velcro (hook or loop) and stick them on the inside of the back of the canopy at the edges of the gap. Then take a piece of opposite-gender Velcro and use it to bridge between them to close the gap. I do that on my Logo 500 and it works great.

during assembly make sure you use the appropriate spacer for the model you are building. I had extra parts when I finished. Took me a few minutes to figure out where they went.

Yes, def. use the appropriate spacers as well as velcro between the halves. Otherwise your canopy will look like this:
