canopy failure on 102" yak
On my 4th day of flying my 2 week old Gen IV 102 , the canopy ripped off. I landed and found all 4 screws still in position. The plane had never been in a power dive or even 3D much. The cause must be a design or manufacturing error. What is my remedy and has this been a common problem? Perhaps there is too much flex in the fuse, or there is a weak point along the canopy rails.

If it is common, what strengthening is recommended for a new canopy?

Sorry to hear about that. Please call QQAC to see if they canopy. I think it had lack of glue. On the new canopy hit the tristocks, with odorless CA and let it soak, don't use kicker!

You are not at fault nor it is a design issue, just lack of glue I believe.

Thank you,
