I got the canopy from a Freewing SBD and I cut it up using a spare piece as a mock up before I make the final cuts on the piece I plan to keep.

I will cover mods, flights and crashes in this blog. Had this plane for 2 years and it has taken a lickin and it keeps on tickin. Below is my second attempt at flying an RC plane. Very nerve racking but it was such a rush. This was the birth of my addiction to rc planes.

Just wanted to document the mods I plan to do to my Dynam 109. Going for a loose version of Frans Stigler's 109 from A Higher Call.
