Just complete the roll and fly it out!

That was painful to watch. You can use the hot water trick to reexpand the nose foam back to shape. i have an L-39 and the problem with them is there really isn't a good way to grip them for launch

Ouch. I can say that has happened to me more than a few times over the years. Usually ends the flying day...

You know the best part about this is I got my best flight of the day in after this with no canopy and no repairs!

The next video will show that flight!
