losing canopy in mid flight?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, new F18 Hornet owner and looking for help. Twice now during a free flight I have lost my canopy mid flight. Literally blows off and yet I didn't touch any button. Happened on take off once I got off the ground and again during a bombing run/dive.

 

On the take off, only thing I touched as I climbed was the ALT switch as I put it down to RDR. On the dive while bombing, only thing I touched was the pickle button to fire a rocket.... and it blew off again. Not sure if this is a glitch or if I am missing something in start up?

 

Anyone have this or have any idea why?

When you close the canopy, hold onto the switch a while, to give the canopy time to really seal (the frame should move forward a bit)
