I saw a similar mod for the Trex 250 canopy mounting standoffs and I thought it could be simplified.

I took two (2) socket screws from Trex 450 feathering shafts and replaced the stock setscrew mounts on the anti-rotation bracket. Then I hand drilled two holes slightly forward on the frame to accept two additional socket screws and the canopy mounting brackets.
You might need to use a washer between the frame and the socket screw due to the limited threading in the canopy standoff. I found a slightly shorter M2x4MM screw and I didn't require the washer spacing.

This mod doesn't work perfectly with stock Align canopies but works perfectly with FUSUNO New Design Fiberglass Canopies. The problem with the Align is the bottom frame plate may be too short to properly contact the bottom of the canopy.

This mod definitely makes it easier to use the larger batteries like the TP 910 mah and Hyperion 850 mah.

●Washer x 2(Φ2xΦ6x0.6mm) (possibly required)
●Socket screws(M2x5mm) (Four Required)
●Socket screws(M2x4mm) (If you have these)

See what you think about the mod..
