Default But If

Ok so the passenger has hand over the edge, it closes on it..........then what? When pulled down by hand much safer to do as unless one yanks it down nothing will happen but most linear actuators have quite a few pounds of force to them and also don't stop on a dime. Just saying don't think its too safe.

I have a friend who has a modified 6 with a key operated canopy lift and close and button inside. It works great and if I gad the skill, I would love to have it.

That is why they are called experimental. If you don't want one, thats great. Nobody is telling you that you have to. For those who have figured it out, even better!
