Looking for a canopy for my Skybolt. Got it flying this summer and having a blast. Would like to extend my flying into the cooler weather here in the Midwest.

I thought about putting a canopy on mine for the same reasons. I found I really like the open cockpit and ended up using an HGU-33 helmet instead. Keeps my head warm when it's cold out.
My own mini canopy.

Sounds like a good idea. Might have to try that if I don't find a canopy.

It will probably be very expensive and time consuming to put a canopy on it.
Especially if Mike W does it.
Its funner flying them open, just get a helmet and electric underwear :)
