Simple and clear canopy (well-known method)

Hello everyone,

Excuse my catastrophic English (thank you google translation)

I look at this forum since long (1.2 and 3) very nice on these small planes cox beautiful.

Thanks Rotatorus:


In my turn I make a contribution to making simple and inexpensive with a canopy.


1 electric oven
1 shoe box
1 roll of Scotch Industrial
1 old wooden frame
4 screws
1 vacuum cleaner
Rhodoid sheets 200 micron



Preheat the oven to 180 - 200 C

Attach A4 (21cm x 29.7cm) on the wooden frame with drawing pins (or other)

Prepare the oven near the shoe box with a vacuum cleaner and nozzle.
Place the canopy original mold on an elevated rack.

Place the frame and the sheet in the oven for about 30 seconds

Turn on the vacuum

Out quickly and apply on the shoe box. (attention to the shoe box gets tired very quickly)

Let stand for 1 minute.

The result guaranteed perfect. This method can be used to refit an engine hood, an air intake or radiator ect ...

Good tests and good flights at all. See you soon.
