Pics of my abused paper canopy...you can see the wrinkle at the nose from being bashed in.

The marks on the canopy are water/mud marks from flying over wet grass...

The worst part is always the bottom by where the canopy slams into the landing gear in a crash. I usually put clear tape over this edge to strengthen/repair it...

And I have not broken any landing skids (yet). Probably about time to print another canopy though.

Happy Flying!
