Hi Ozonene,

I've used Pactra windshield tint on my Micro-V canopies and it works super. YES, I do paint the halves separately and then CA them with THIN. YOU are a little correct that the paint is being glued but the way the FLANGE locks and the way the instructions say to apply the CA for WICKING purposes from the front or outside of the edge...it will make a bond on the edge of the material and it really locks. I've purposely squished my canopy to test the bond and it won't break.

You could use a shoe-goo or E-6000 type glue from the inside but you will add weight and it may look messy. I've assembled close to 10 canopies while testing and making some for myself...the CA works super on a painted surface. You can also assemble the canopy and paint the outside and clear it. That is also mentioned in the instructions. I prefer the inside as car bodies are done.

FRANK! SO, grace us with the paint job! <G>

You can buy the Micro-V at rcmodelsports.com or heliproz.com Both have them in stock...

THANKS for the continued interest!
