Re: Loose Canopy incident, crashes short.

Probably pilot distraction. I took off once without latching the canopy. It is forward hinged like the tri q in the picture. The canopy wants to lift up and it gets very noisy but there was no controllability problems. On the other hand, if the canopy lifts up on my SX300 it will blank the elevator, decreasing effectiveness . Greg Z TRI Q 200 89RZ
