Can any of you tell me what comes in the spare parts kit for the canopy and windsceen? Also any idea when they will have more in stock? I got CA on mine just a few minutes ago and found out that Debonder and the plastic in the canopy do not mix. I have an ugly looking smudge now on my canopy. If anyone has a spare they are not using at this time I would sure like to get one ASAP. I can fly my plane the way it is but it is very ugly. We have our Aero Tow coming up August 21st through the 24th and i would really like to have a new one before then.
Pat:

Take 600-grit wet/dry sandpaper (wet) to the affected area to get all the CA off, then polish it out with Meguiar's Fine Cut polish and a high speed buffing pad. I've used this method on many painted fuselages and canopies with great success.

You can find buffing pads and a flex shaft that will fit your drill press or use a dedicated buffer. Just be careful that you don't sand a divot into the canopy. Use a sanding block to help prevent this. Good luck and keep us posted!

I put 2.5 lbs to start with as I knew I had 1 lb of batteries. I ended up having to drill out 6 oz to get to near 75. I added about 4 oz back in in a plastic bag velcro'd under the batteries putting the CG near 70.
