Two strenghtening mods: canopy and skids

1. Canopy strengthening mod

I used transparent scotch tape strips and applied them to the inside of the canopy. No appreciable increase in weight, and I think it prevented it from shattering during a crash I had.

2. Skid strengthening

The skids consist of two thin strips of plastic with a hollow recess in between. A hard landing would certainly break the two strips. I used the wire from a paper clip. Two pieces were used (picture attached), a straight piece for the straight part of the skid and a curved piece for the end. This is followed by the application of epoxy. The grey, metal filler, quick setting type is preferable.
