Default Looking for a Tiger 2 canopy



I am looking for a canopy for a Goldberg Tiger 2. Tower Hobbies does not stock the part and I have scoured the internet looking for another source. I appreciate any help.

Thanks

Ron

GO TO WALMART!!!!!!

They sell the soft drinks in 1 gallon PLASTIC bottles. You can, with very little effort, cut out a Tiger Canopy, and probably get it in different colors!!!!

Are you talking about 2 liter soda bottles? I never thought about that, might be worth a try.

Thanks

Yes, they sell the 2 liters also, but sometimes the canopy you need is bigger, and the gallon jugs they sell comes in very handy!!!

Ron have you phoned and talked to them in person? I was looking for a canopy for my Tiger 60 and found that it was not listed..I thought that if they sell the kit and you bought a kit with a damaged canopy they would have to replace it so they must be available and sure enough when I talked to them in person they are available..They cost $30.00 and then $20.00 shipping to Canada..Try giving them a call if you haven't already..I like the soda bottle Idea,its cheaper..You could modify and run an open cockpit too,like the Saratoga..Just a thought...Good luck

First, the good news...found a canopy on eBay that fit perfectly. Now the bad news, had a mid-air today with a silent electric that I never saw or heard until impact (don't know how he didn't see or hear me). The crash was fatal but..........the canopy did survive!
