Steve, are the canopy/canopies functional (sliding) on the Dauntless?
The sections appear to be separated.

It doesn't come with the three sections separated, Dan, but I am considering doing that. It wouldn't take too much effort.

To keep from paying exorbitant UPS fees when things cross the border, Jack, you ship the package to Johnson's TrueValue Hardware in Calais (Just use their address as the shipping address with your name). Quick run down on a Saturday, cross and pick up the package ($15.00 US), have a nice lunch at Yancy's, pay the HST on the way back and you're on the way home. If we hadn't stopped for lunch, the whole process wouldn't have taken 20 minutes from the time I got to US Customs to where I was leaving Canadian Customs.

I ordered mine from TexasRC. Great guy to deal with.

Nope. Just use their address with your name.

Address: 188 North St, Calais, ME 04619, USA

And follow with UPS Tracking. Once I saw it was delivered, I just went down the next weekend. I think they are open both Saturday and Sunday.

They do this a lot. They have a large counter at the back of the store just for packages. The "young petite lady" Wink at the counter will give you your shipment and a slip of paper. Just pay the fee in the way out at the regular checkout.

Nice info Steve!!  I watched the entire film. I didn't realise they used the Dauntless for dive bombing.

Well, I've given it some thought... MAAC won't let me fly over the pits, everyone else will be using the runway so I think that leaves the parking area. In the film, they have a nice white dot for the center so I'm thinking that maybe a nice white Dodge Caravan would make a nice target if someone would care to donate one.
I think your van is probably pretty safe, Al. I'd have a better chance of hitting myself.
