does anyone know are there any other canopies that can fit the hawk pro with minor modifications?? I thought I heard you can make a raptor canopy fit rather easily,true or false?

I think almost anything will fit with some modifications. Most attach at 3 points in some way or another. Just be creative and you can glue/solder/fabricate/lick hard enough and it will fit.

I will say the Hawk canopy has a nice shape to it and is smaller than a Raptor canopy in length and maybe a smidge wider. The Raptor canopy can probably be made to fit. I tried to place the stock plastic canopy over the Hawk and there were some width issues. There will be quite a bit of trimming to clear the muffler too. I think it'll work but I wont be one to whittle one to see if it really fits. It's not a drop on fit though it looks like the rear attach holes will work fine. Something would have to be cobbled together for the body clip.

Anybody have a Vibe 50 and a Hawk? Would like to know if the Vibe's canopy will fix on the Hawk.

I am in the proses of getting an Xtreme 50 Canopy for my Pantera, but I think from the looks it might just fit on my Kinetic50/Raven witch is the same size as the Hawk. So when I get it I will let you know.

I understand that the coming new Raven NX will have a new style canopy similar to that of their Swift 620SE (I love the look of that canopy).

Might be worth waiting for it, as it will probably be an easy fit to the existing Hawks and Ravens.

In due time. Little to hard on my wallet right now.

Hows your Hawk flying. I seen you post in a thread where someone was looking for a Hawk Pro. I hope you are not thinking of getting rid of it already .

I got the Xtreme50 canopy today and considered putting it on my Pantera but in the end I went with the Kinetic/Raven/Xtreme50

I had to make the front canopy hook longer and also move my throttle servo around and make a shorter rod. Also trimmed a small amount around the muffler
