If the airplane has a Pilot and a Cockpit showing the typical gauges used in the real plane, is it alright to paint or tint the canopy so dark that you can only see the Pilot by removing the canopy?

I'm pondering trying the Basic Level this year and am not familiar with the details of the rules.

I know that if you don't have a Pilot you will lose points.
Hey Brian,
I have a solution!
Put the pilot and panel in, and instead of black painting the canopy, just tint it REALLY dark- so you can just see inside.
I used to do that years ago with black dye in hot water.

Re: Is this Legal in IMAC?

Tamiya PS 31 Smoke in a rattle can does a pretty good job too. I made a canopy base from thin Lexan and tinted it so the internals don't draw the eye away from the inside of the cockpit*:

*RAMJET, I can still see the receiver light and fuel tank...
