    Bobcat 50 canopy tinting

    Has anyone attempted tinting the canopy on the Bobcat 50? Will the material accept the Rit dye method?

    RE: Bobcat 50 canopy tinting

    Good question.

    The plastic on mine was painted from the bottom, not condusive to the dye method.... Not the thickest plastic either.

    On one plane that I have which I will build next year, I was planning on lightly fiberglassing the bottom completely to give the canopy more strength, and then painting the top.

    There is an art . . . to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
