Re: Rough fitting my cockpit doors and hardware....
The problem with yaw issues etc is that the evidence is all anecdotal, as we say in medicine. Nobody has carefullytoggle quoted message Show quoted text
determined that something else on the aircraft isn't screwed up. Press on. It's all education and recreation (tho I would
prefer to fly sooner rather than later by not jacking around with unusual mods... but it ain't MY life)

I know this won't be making friends but...
It looks flimsy- when the engine is running it looks like the airstream will tear it apart.
It weighs more than the per plans canopy.
It blocks your view compared to the plans canopy.
It took hundreds of hours extra to design and build.
it is unproven in flight.
If I remember correctly there is a Q200 at the Lakeland FL EAA Air museum that tried a taller canopy. I don't think he liked how the plane flew and donated it to the museum. I think the airflow was messed up and he had Yaw issues. You may want to investigate that. A taller Vertical fin might be in order for your mods? I might have a picture of that Q200 somewhere if you want it.
