Is the MX450 canopy longer than the stock ARK canopy? I'm having battery fitment issues and I'm, hoping a longer canopy will be the solution.

Yes, the 450 canopy is longer. Some folks have fitted Trex XL or SE canopies as well.

I used a buddy's SE canopy, but that plastic is really thin and looks weak compared to the helimax stuff. I like the way the new 450 canopy looks anyways. Too bad that it'll cost about $25 for everything. I guess thats the price for style.

I have crashed a few times with the helimax canopy and its still intact! I've been through several TRex canopies doing the same thing!

Yeah, the Helimax canopy is more durable - it is like milk jug plastic - but the Trex one fits better.

I just put the MX-450 canopy on my MX-400 tonight. Gives a lot more room than the stock canopy. No more rubbing control linkages. It's quite mean looking. Just had to relocate the mounting holes a little higher. Only cost me $12. Gonna paint it when I get around to it.

I have my old t-rex canopy and it was actually worse for me than the stock canopy. My control linkages, especially the ailerons, were contacting the top of the canopy at 0 pitch. I could not use it. If I had the ECCPM upgrade it would work but not with the MCCPM system. Maybe the new t-rex canopy would work with the MCCPM but that thing is like $20.
