Where to get a Canopy for a Cloud Dancer?
 
Does anyone know where to get a canopy for a Cloud Dancer?
I'm fixing one up that was built from an Ace kit or RCM plans.. Not sure exactly.

Tower has 4 or 5 pages of different styles that one or two might be adapted to the cloud dancer.

What size Cloud Dancer ? The RCM plans I have for the 60 size says "SIG 13" WWII Canopy". The wing cord at the fuse on mine is 15". The wing and fuse dimensions are different between the Ace and RCM. I didn't follow the plans at the turtle deck and canopy so I can't give you a part number to use.

I don't have the 40 size and my 120 plans are out for short kit cutting at the laser cutter. Good luck.

It's a 40 size Cloud Dancer..

Looks like it might be the a SIG canopy.. I'll have to measure it.

What is the difference between the Bubble canopy and the WWI bubble canopy?
Just a flat windshield on the WWI version?

The one on the plane is 9.5" long so I'm guessing it's a SIG 10 or 11 trimmed up a little.

The SIG catalog I have from 2002 has on page L9 the WWII and generic canopies. They are hard to find on the website but with the item #'s it takes you there, no pictures however.

WWII STYLE (FLATISH FRONT) SIGWC809 2-3/8" W X 2-1/4" H X 9"
.040 PLASTIC SIGWC811 2-7/8" X 2-3/4" X 11"


MOLDED CLEAR PLASTIC(ROUND FRONT) SIGCS009 2" X 1-3/4" X 9"
.030 PLASTIC SIGCS10 2-1/4" X 2" X 10"
SIGCS11 2-1/2" X 2" X 11"

I really like my Cloud Dancer, great flier.
