Here's a pic of my new Trex nitro canopy. It is much nicer than I expected. Top quality in my opinion, great detail.

That's sweet! I have also just received mine from Canomod, they are good value for the money.

Too bad Canomod has to copy someone else's design (DYD's)...

Yup, that's the downside of Canomod. Their latest design is a Nigel Brown's N9 look-a-like.

Dave,

Please get you facts right, Canomod is actually from Thailand, NOT CHINA!

pictures don't do your canopies justice Sam. They look so much better in person!

I would gladly buy the original but I know Dave can't make canopies for all us average Joes who want one. I also support other painters who do have time. Just ask Ace Helis. What do they say about imitation?

you're correct. I don't see anything wrong at all with selling cheaper canopies, the detail isn't there like Daves. People who want Yost canopies will buy Yost canopies. My only issue is that it's a blatant copy. If you're a painter, you should have a little bit of originality, and not just copy someone eles design.

You are right bg, if you put them side by side there would be no comparison. Dave's blows it away. But for a good looking "beater" canopy for $99, when NOBODY else is mass producing Trex Nitro canopies I don't have a problem. I do have a DYD canopy (had to pay dearly for it used) so I have laid them side by side.

Yes but how do you even get a yost canopy? I emailed Dave yost many moons ago, filled out the form, and never even got a reply back, so even if I wanted a DYD canopy I cannot get one, and I heard he is backed up till Jan 08 anyway. Most of all you can not beat the quality and price of the canomods. I bought an N9 canopy and was quite surprised at the quality and especially the price!!!
Incredible value - canopy included.
BTW how much are the DYD canopies ($ 300 - $ 400??)
With a DYD canopy crashes would really get hit the ole pocketbook hard!

Yeap I was also against copying others job but I'll have to remind you that there is also a US guy copying DYD's designs.

Actually he is also advertised in rr front page and sells his canopies from here so copying is not only Far East guys prerogative

No matter what it is good to have someone making nice looking canopies (even if they are copied) at more affordable prices and realistic times as DYD canopies no matter how good they are their prices are half the cost of a heli kit and you will have to wait forever until you get one on your hands.

I also was more than willing to buy the "real" deal and contacted DYD and was told it would be a LONG time. Basically got the brush off but I have no problem with that.

Hey SPB, who are you talking about? I've dealt with some canopy guys that advertise on the front page and they would not even think of copying anyone else's designs when we discussed it. PM me if you prefer.
