Canopy opening

Of course I understand that you cannot open the canopy during flight but it would be good to be able to open it during taxiing.

At the moment you have to bring the aircraft to a complete stop before you can open the canopy and I have a longstanding habit of taxiing to parking with the door or canopy open.
Is this something that can be addressed?

Per, Thanks for the idea :)
This feature will be added in the next update :twisted:
It's simplier than autoclose canopy :)

The ability to open the canopy during taxying would be great. :D One small thing I've noticed is that if I attempt to open the canopy while taxying the canopy opening sound effect will loop continuously. This looping will continue until the canopy actually opens after I've stopped taxying.

Hi;

After I open the canopies still on ground (the 3 red handles), then I try to close them and I CANNOT...Am I doing something wrong??
I would appreciate an answer.

Thanks again for your wonderful model.

Regards

Hello grhgor!

Red canopy handles are emergency handles, usually if you used it canopy is throw away and you have noway to find it back :)
To open canopy use another handle, sure you'll have no problem to find it ;)
