Those must be some strong canopy struts.

Watch the video, at 1:57 he pushes a button to open the canopy.

Joe's canopy is electrically actuated, among many, many other innovations on his build disclosed on his website.

Looking good Joe, congratulations!

Default electrically actuated

Thanks Tony

The ability to set the canopy at any angle is a benefit that I really like.

There is also the ability to open by hand the same as Vans design.

The vinyl wrap by my wife and I was not as difficult as I thought.

I think that this is the third or fourth Jabiru Powered 12.

Joe,

I wish you would share with us all the modifications you incorporated in your RV-12 build. I am only aware of a couple of dozen.

Regards,
Tom
