EF Cypher Canopy Mount Modification

January 3, 2009

The EF Cypher is only available with a plastic canopy. To fit a fiberglass canopy you have to modify the mounts a little. End result:

The stock canopy mounting posts were moved to the holes in front of the upper bearing block, and modified to allow the new canopy to properly mount to it while also allowing full servo arm movement. Harbor Freight drill press + Dremel = Poor Man's Lathe :) A polycarbonate strip was attached to the front landing gear strut so the canopy has a surface to grip.
