Default Hehe..

Just glued my hbfpv2 back together. It gets a hell of a beating and now the frame is broken on all four places that holds the lower compartment. Just went through pack 3 after last crash and the black wire to the tail motor decided come loose, lucky I was at a low altitude and now i'm so familiar with things going wrong I hit fast throttle hold, but there was enough force to brake the tail fin.

Anyhow I got a tip about Canopy mounting. I rely got tired of the canopy mount breaking in every crash. After much thinking i came up with a very easy solution. Just take two of the rubber things for the canopy, i'm sure everyone have two of these laying around, then put them on the pin. Now the pin is not suppose to go through the original mount but just put it on top of it laying against the swash anti rotation guide. If it's a very tight fit you can always cut some of the canopy so it will slide further in. To stop the pin from sliding to one of the sides use the rubber things to lock it in place, it works great!

Can you post a pic of your canopy containment system ?
