Default Flying with canopy

I ventured outside yesterday and just when I took off a breeze came up and blew the 120sr into the house. All is ok except for the canopy which won't fly again.

A search of this forum didn't come up with anything, so the question is, does flying without a canopy affect the performance of the heli?

I don't know the answer to your question, but I'm guessing it would effect your CG.

While I'm learning to fly, I'm using what you see in the link which is real cheap (takes a little time to build). You can download the PDF for it on page 21 I believe.

Well, the tail boom takes care of that actually.
