SV-11 Canopy Removal
« on: April 05, 2018, 04:24:53 PM »
Want to put a head in there. Has anyone tried to remove the canopy, how did it go? Mine looks like it was glued to the covering and not much glue, is it going to hold anyway? Would a heat gun damage the plastic. Maybe going in from the bottom would be best?


Thanks,

Mine was poorly aligned and most of the glue pooled to one corner.  I applied some warm air from a heat gun snd using light pressure with my finger, was able to lift it off.  Now looking for a good solvent to soften whatever glue they used and clean up the csnopy before re-ataching again.

 Most likely rc56 glue . water softens and you can clean up . Leave a wet rag in cotact for some time and will soften.
Have used this to glue RC arfs canopies for ages

Make sure the canopy gets put back on right. I see lots of stunt planes with the canopy on backwards.
