Here is pic of mod moving canopy. Greatly reduced but did not eliminate flybar strikes, but at least I can fly it aggressively now and any strike doesn't cause out of control like before. In fact on other side black paint is gone where flybar hit and I've had it 1 week. Some aggressive flights now I get no strikes, where before it was almost unflyable in high rates outside.
Moved canopy back and down a little, added grommets.
This is why I swtiched to the Solo Pro canopy. It weighs less and has a lower profile than the stock V911 canopy allowing even more flybar clearance.
Maybe a combo of repositioning, a lower profile canopy, stiffer grade flybar plastic, shorter flybar might be easiest method to help reduce or eliminate flybar strikes during aggressive high rates flying if the CF rod option is a no go.
