    Genovese Brothers DR109 - help

    Folks -
    I've acquired a Genovese Brothers DR109 from an estate ... took me a while to figure out what it was. The canopy is trashed and I need something to replace it. It looks a lot like a two place Extra 330L.
    I read that these planes were built to order, so I am hoping I can track down this builder to see if he has a canopy left.
    I looked at Fiberglass Specialties ... nothing there. I have a question into Carden to see if one of their canopies will fit.
    My vacuum former is not big enough for this one. Here is a pic of the same plane from a related RCU thread:



    Does anyone know if this builder is still around, or how to contact him?
    Thanks in advance.
    ... I DO read the instructions ...

    I believe that one of the brothers (Dave) was a member of my club (Chicagoland Radio Control Modelers) for a number of years (he was flying a DR109 that I believe he told me was of his or his brothers design). He hasn't been with our club for a number of years now. I believe he moved to the Fox Valley Aero Club of St. Charles, IL. after he left our club but I haven't heard or seen him in at least 4-5 years. You might try contacting the Fox Valley Aero Club and see if anyone knows more. Not a hundred percent sure he is who you are looking for but I am pretty sure he said he or his brother or both designed the DR109 he was flying at the time.

    Well, you are right. After I posted this question I found a youtube vid with the Fox Valley logo on it. I contacted them, but no joy there - they say he has not been a member since 2014.
    Carden suggested I try JTec ... I did not realize how extensive their line is. It looks like they have a canopy I can cut down to fit.
    Thanks for the help ... really appreciate it ... RC guys are always ready to help another guy.

    What scale is the plane? Here's a photo of 38% scale One Design that I have a plug for. The photo is a Frank Knoll design however I copied the canopy from the Bob Godfrey One Design.Click image for larger version.
