the address for ace that shows their new canopy for the raptor 60. I have an adress but it keeps telling me that I don't have permission to get into the site. I must have an old address.
By the way have any of you seen the new canopy for the 60-90? It is fantastic, it give the bird a whole new look. Jeff Shwartz had one out the field last weekend and we tried it on my new 60.

Get it from East Coast - not onlyraptors.com!


When these canopies first came out I thought I'd order them and give them a try. I ordered two from Clark at onlyraptors.com - Clark threw in a hat for good measure. I hadn't owned fiberglass canopies before and I had two questions. Did it come with the mounting clip on the bottom of the canopy? Did it come with the scheme as advertised (like Jeff's pic) and like their website? Clark said yes to both questions. I got the canopies in great shape and well packaged. I opened one and no clip and no SE scheme - no decals or anything. Also, I was charged $5 more for each canopy than advertised - maybe that's why I got the hat. I called and explained my frustration - the only two questions I asked and neither of them were true - plus I was overcharged a total of $10 for the canopies from their advertised price. I asked if he could just send me the decals and the mounting clips and all would be good. He refused and said he would pay to have them shipped back instead. When I do the math on two mounting clips and two decal sets and a $10 overcharge as opposed to paying for return shipping on two large boxes I was pretty disappointed in his customer service.

Now I realize after the fact that the mounting clips were not needed due to the standoffs you get with a fiberglass canopy. And some might think me crazy for liking the SE decal scheme. The point is the customer service. In the end he paid for a return pickup on the shipping instead of making it right. I realized that I'd rather save the money and fly the plastic canopies instead until I'm a better flyer.

BTW - Clark edited the website right after I called and asked him again what was included with the canopies. After telling him I was staring at a box without the contents, he changed the ad - rightly so.

The funniest thing to me was Clark made me return the hat too.
I won't order from them again - but that's just me.

Most new things from TT/Ace are in short supply when introduced. Just be patient

AVOID ONLYRAPTORS.COM

read my post above before you get it from onlyraptors.com - i'd get it somewhere else first like East Coast Extreme - but that's my bad experience - just my 2 cents
