Cheap and Easy 5 minute Bubble Canopy for your RC Plane


Active member
My latest RC conversion project, a cheap foamie FMS Alpha jet It's still under construction, but I got bored while waiting for some parts to finish it so decided to try and make a bubble canopy for it. It worked! You may have to experiment a bit to get a good result, but you can find empty drinks bottles everywhere so this costs nothing! A bit of gentle heat from a hot air gun might work too, though my gun was too hot and it just curled the plastic up. Have a go?
Happy Festive season and keep an eye out for the build blog and hopefully successful maiden of my Alpha Jet.
