One way to get more air circulating through canopy.

Get your trusty Dremel with a grinder.

Take your time and grind out an opening.

here is the left side, right is already done with screen, seen through the left side.

cut a piece of screen, this is from an old door. Super glue around perimeter, position the screen to your liking and press on.

Thankyou Admiral and Chopper. Since it is kinda beat up, I am gonna cut out the black canopy "glass" up top and see if it retains it's stiffness...would be a whole lot of air circulation then.

Thankyou Tom, I know you have seen it before but thought maybe somebody could use the idea here, even though it is an old idea I found on other places, some guys might not know and could benefit from them, especially new guys who hover alot... Rolling Eyes ...I know for a fact you need all the air you can get, LOL. *sigh*

Nice handiwork there.

But, are these vent holes just desirable for cooling, or do manufacturers not realise their importance and fliers believe that they are in fact necessary?

I'll be embarking on a self-build soon, and all these tips are useful.

Cheers
