Anyone have an s1 canopy? Having some bad luck finding one and would rather not spend the money on one from steen.

I would like to find one that has the whole set up sliders latches and all.

hey
you dont need a canopy give me a brake it never gets that cold down here. i came from michigan and never had a canopy up there and would fly in the winter. as for the wind nosie they make a bigger muff to go over your mic. to cut down on nosie. i dont have one but i hear it does a good job. i can hear other people but i know they have a hard time hearing me but i have gotten use to it.

I ordered a canopy from planecanopies a couple of weeks ago and then never heard anything again. Never got charged and never got a canopy. I cant get in contact with Dave now after several attempts.

Also had one lined up on barnstormers but while the guy was "finding a box" he sent me an email telling me that he forgot he had sold it a while ago. Guess he just didnt feel like shipping it.

Im having some bad luck with my canopy search

Heard from Dave today and it looks like I should have one soon from planecanopies!

Dave has been really helpful so far with install photos, advice, and info on the canopy so I am happy that things will work out through him.
