Help!
FX071C/V912 canopy mounts.

First, are they the same?

Second, does anyone have a spare pair to sell me, please?

Hong Kong is the closest stockist to the UK and I fear I may lose the will to live if I have to wait for another slow boat

The v912 canopy pin is shorter than the fx071. The v912 pin is more flexible and withstand a impact/crash better. Because the v912 pin is shorter it requires something between the frame and pin to prop it out so the canopy when mounted don't interfere with the push rods. The screw holes are off and requires the widening of one hole for both holes to line up.

Last night I filed flat the ends of the canopy mounts where the little bits had snapped off and inserted a little self tapper screw in each. As luck would have it, they're a perfect fit. Now they're far stronger than before and complete time/money savers
