Of course is splits as soon as you look at it like a cheap date. This is just not well thought out at all. So I am now trying to re-enforce the canopy with tape ( just sticky tape from Staples for instance), and put a strip of that just in front of the landing gear cut-outs. Like a dogs muzzle if that give a better picture. I am thinking that is a better than just flying without the canopy to protect the PCB .
Glad you got it going. One of the first things I do is reinforce the inside of the canopy with duck tape, do the top inside also they like to split down the middle. Another important thing is I hot glue all around the battery wires where they connect to the receiver. Helps keep the power transfer up by preventing strains from breaking in the battery plug.
