I don't like gluing the canopy on and not being able to get to the steering servo so I made a removable canopy for mine.
First I cut along the canopy indentitation on the fuse with a sharp razor knife.
I cut down at an angle sort of like cutting the top out of a pumpkin so that it will set back in the pumpkin without falling through.
Then I glued the dash piece and the canopy to this foam piece. I glued a short piece of ply at the front that slides under the resulting lip on the fuse and used two rare earth magnets at the back to snap it in place.
Now I can easily remove the canopy to get to the servo to tighten the screw on the control rod, or remove the servo if it fails.
