I recently obtained an Arizona Heli painted canopy for my Sceadu 50. After drilling and grommetting holes in identical locations as the stock canopy, I'm having some problems fitting the canopy on. The rear mounts attach exactly like the stock ones but the front ones don't. It's as if the canopy is wider than stock at the front. Tha canopy mounts are about 4mm too short on either side. I'll probably try to make some new mounts, but thought I would check here first to see if anyone else has had this problem, and maybe came up with an easy solution. Any thoughts would be apreciated.

I used a set of rear mounts on the front. They are longer than the front ones. Trim them down as needed.

I cut off the hex ends of an extra set of rear posts and installed them in place of the short front posts and the canopy fits perfectly. Thanks mudbogger2!

Also if your aileron rod rubs against the side of the canopy, dont chop it all away, try extending the rubber bumpers to make the canopy flex away from the rod.

I had a canopy Painted by AZ Heli's for my EVO 50. We did a trial fit before the canopy was painted and found the same thing. If the rear mounts have the HEX cut off they fit great. Also, trim the edges a little to make it easier to get them off of the front mounts.

If you have the same fiberglass canopy as I got from AZ Heli, all the control linkages should clear the canopy once it's on.

Also, there was a previous thread on here about fiberglass canopies for Sceadu's. Someone was using the threaded aluminum mounts on they're Sceadu. Not sure where they got them or what type they were.

The threaded mounts are from the Freya line. Just trim the base off the front mount. This will result in a slightly wider front stance perfect for the Arizona Heli canopy.

I just fit mine this weekend!

If you intend to run a JK Muffler you will need to trim the muffler side a little more on the high side to get clearance on the Arizona canopy.

I did have to trim away a smidgeon on the right side to keep the aileron C/R from rubbing.
