Recently worked with an Airplane Plastics Co to design and produce a beautiful custom bubble canopy for my 701. Installed it a few days ago and I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!!..Took just a few hours to install the whole thing. Strongly suggest pulling this off if you guys can on yours..you wont regret it! 4” of more headroom and the view...SPECTACULAR!! (Just realized I don't know how to add the pics?..any help would be appreciated..I”m pretty sure the community of 701 owners will want to see this)

Pics would be great !!

The easiest way toadd a photo at this point may be to reply to this blog, tap the photo icon in the upper right corner, select a few photos and follow the directions to post them. Don’t worry about questions regarding pixels or anything else, they will get posted.

I would like to know the name of the outfit that did the work for you too, if you could give us that info. Sounds interesting. 

I am building a 701 and interested in what the canopy looks like.  Does it affect the handling of the plane?

Thanks

Jim

 I’m getting all of your replies but when I try to put the pic in it’s just too big! Working on how to reduce it so you guys can see what I’m speaking about. Standby

 You can email me directly for the pics, call me to talk about it, or text me which would be much easier and I could just text you the pics back… Very busy trying to run from the storm!

I’d be interested in how this canopy affects your performance, vs an airfoil shape. 

No effect of performance or capabilities of this aircraft whatsoever!   You don’t even know it’s there except for the amazing view!..

 No affect whatsoever on the performance of the AIRCRAFT… There are no adverse effects from this canopy on the handling of the Aircraft as well.  It’s 10 times better than I ever expected I could not be more pleased.

Is this available through airplane plastics? 

Yes
