if noone will sell you one here, your best bet is to get it from arizonaheli. he is great to deal with and his canopies fit way better than the stock ones.

When you receive your canopy, check it out real closely, as Minair has had some problems recently with their canopy supplier. When I bought my Spectra-G earlier this summer, the canopy was an absolute abomination.

It was severely twisted and misshapened, would not fit properly on the heli, and required alot of heat gun work to even get it marginally fitting. In addition, the Gelcote was cracking and falling off in numerous areas of the canopy and was too soft. The second canopy they sent me was better, but still not good. It finally took THREE attempts to get a good, usable canopy for my Spectra. To Minair's credit, they kept working with me until I got a good one and never asked for any of them back.

If you have a problem with the new canopy, call them immediately and ask for a replacement, they're good for it. Keep us posted.

I had the same problem. I bought my kit this spring and the canopy didnt fit right. i wouldnt say it was an abomination, but the main gear rubbed on the sides with the original rear standoffs. THe gelcoat was ok, but a heat gun would not fix the problem. They sent me a second canopy and its still not quite right, but its better. I bought long standoffs for the rear that work perfectly. To minairs credit though, they were the same for me. very helpful, and didnt ask for the original back.

Spectra Canopy

I have a used Spectra canopy for a Spectra setup with the motor forward facing here:

I switched the setup of the motor to rear facing and sold the orange and yellow canopy. The purple and white one is still available. I did order a new canopy from AZ heli and the fit and finish is excellent. Very happy with the purchase from AZ heli. Can say enough good things about it!
