Has anyone tried mounting another manufacturers canopy on the gasser. I'm afraid the one that Mal designed turns my tummy and I just can't use it. Someone told me they had seen one with a Trex 700 canopy that looked pretty decent but didn't have any details on what it took to make it work. Any suggestions ?

It is possible...

Look through my gallery near the bottom, you'll see the canopy mine came with when I bought it used a few years ago. It was held by a single front center-mounted pin which protruded down and two side pins which were mounted more rearward than the ones for the canopy designed by Malorie. I went the other way and installed the cheeky one, which can be seen in the more recent pictures at the top.

Fact is, yes, you can mount other canopies to it, as long as it's wide enough to slip on the frame. I suggest holding it at 4 spots, however. I never cared for the flimsiness at the front of the old one.

Good luck,

Gigi

My heli spending has gone way down since I got a Honda 919 :-)
