    Well I ran into a bit of a snafu this evening with the canopy replacement on the big Yak. After getting everything ready for the replacement canopy to be installed, I fully looked over the canopy and noticed far too many blemishes and imperfections. Also, the overall size of the canopy is bigger than the original. I am wondering if it was designed as such so that it could be trimmed to fit. Which I would probably be okay with if it weren't for so many imperfections. Right on top of the canopy in front of one of the cross braces, it looks as though the plastic has a deformity in it. Kind of like a bulge. Also, the paint lines are not perfectly straight and there are like tiny "dots" under the black paint on the top cross brace. If it were just one small imperfection, I would probably go with it, however there are just too many for me to be satisfied with. I have emailed Tony at Pilot RC with the photos and information. Hopefully they will get back to me soon. For the time being, I am not going to complete the canopy install at this time. I am hoping Tony and his team will get me the correct fitting canopy with no imperfections sent out soon. I did however get the rear canopy support glued in. Now it will be a waiting game.

    Here are just a couple of photos of the imperfections.

    I will keep you all posted on the outcome of this minor setback.

    See the muffler and it looks complicated, and cannot even figur how it works.

    Very hard to tell if the glass cover over the panel looks any different from the photos. If you do it make sure it does not come off from the sun and vibration it would be real pain to fix once the put the canopy back on. Just have to comment on that Pilot boy does he look good.

    That looks like a Byron "Purr'n Power mount that they had for their Corsair.

    Thanks Snoop... he definately adds to the look of the plane. Decided against the clear gauge covers. I think they will offer no advantage or added benefits.

    49dimes Damn I'm hungry

    We have a winner of a chicken dinner :applause:. Sorry Snoop.... "No Soup for you" :sorry: . Rob gets what's behind curtain number 3 :cautious:.HeHe

    Close Doug :congrats:. It is actually the Purr'n Power mount/mustang 50 combo. Will be going in a Byron P-47.


    I just got to jig it up for a test run. Needs to be mounted in the plane to determine where to cut (if necessary) the muffler inlet header so the exhaust adapter fitting can be welded in place. For the bench test just going to "shove it" together. It is in really good shape and engine looks to be very low time. The owner just wants to make sure it starts and runs.

    It looked familiar because I built a Byron Corsair with one running a Quadra 50 in 1994. Unfortunately I never got to hear it run or see it fly since the guy I built it for was from Mexico. He didn't want me to test run it because he was afraid the gas smell would cause problems in customs.
