    Flying a Thatcher CX4 Spitfire wannabe, (Miss Mitty), while building a CX5 because my wife was NOT impressed to see that the CX4 only had one seat.

    Welcome aboard. When you say deep south of Canada I think Point Pelee. Are you based near Windsor or Leamington or?

    What a neat looking airplane!

    Have you a source for a canopy?
    My question relates to the need for an improved height canopy for my Sonerai2L.
    Not sure the unit for a CX5 would work or not, but it certainly looks suggestive.

    Thanks,

    The CX4 canopy comes from Dave Thatcher. The CX5 canopy comes from Airplane Plastics in Dayton OH. About $1k
