Hi guys, I was thinking about getting this canopy from Heliproz.
Has anybody bought one of these? If so hows the quality?
Thick,thin,sturdy or flimsy? Also wanted to know if the canopy bubble window is removable for easier painting.
Thanks guys.

They've been around for quite a while, I think you'll find many people who are happy with them.

I believe the windshield is not separate from the rest of the canopy.

yes. It is the same shape as the plastic canopy.

I forgot to mention, the windshield is NOT removeable, it is simply painted black.

I have bought 3 of the 50 size Mavrikk canopies and I have been very happy with them. They hold up great, take paint well and the weight is low. I wouldn't even bother with any other canopies for my Raptors after buying the Mavrikks. The Mavrikk R90 canopies are great too and are very low weight compared to stock.

Nice paint job. Did you do that you self??

What kind of muffler are you using for the OS 50 Hyper? I too have a Raptor 50 and have been debating to retire it as the stock TT 50 Pro just doesn't have the kick and OS 50 Hyper seems to need Align Pipe, which doesn't fit the stock canopy.

I wish I could paint that well. I have a buddy that does all of my paint jobs for me. I think I have paid for at least one of his kids college tuition so far

In that pic I was running an MP2. I switched to the MP5 shortly after and it ran a little better. Since then I swapped to a TT53 with an MP5 "Stick Banger" pipe. It runs pretty good. If you want a really good pipe for the Hyper, try the Hatori "Bobby Watts" pipe. It has great midrange and lots of power with the Hyper.

I have had to cut the canopies no matter which pipe I have tried. Just part of owning a Raptor
