Long time, no progress. Summer is ending and I get back to building very slowly. Managed to heat form my first acceptable canopy from my balsa plug. Before that I tryed to use shrinking plastic bottles but these are no good for so big canopy. There were traces of bottleīs structure and plastic shrinked unevenly etc. So I found a piece of heat forming plastic from my office architectural model building shop. This worked well. Other observation I made, that my plug was too soft balsa, and after every pull I had to do little repairing. But Iīm not gonna produce these things, so itīs okay.

Excellent! I've been wondering what to use to do the same thing.

Hi, build is on very slow mode right now. Just had a little baby in my family and lots of time goes for him.

Hi
I think Iīm warming up my build again. I have the plug in condition to start making the servo tray and place pushrods etc. But I have to buy servos first and thought that maybe somebody can suggest me servos. Or what type and strength servos I should use on that size plane.
