Hi John,

Does the club's RF5B have the std canopy or the tall version?

John,

Your is the low version. There are mods in California but the canopy guy is having health issues. Another RF owner is trying to buy the mods. We will let you know if we get them.

Thanks Collin. We are having a meeting this Saturday with some local canopy makers to see if they can make a plan. The big debate is "Blown" v "Mould".
Will let you know how things go.
