So I guess one of the enhancements you get with the LE kit is a dented canopy!

Mine was dented on the left side. A buddy of mine got his LE kit today and it was also dented on the left side.

Nice................

They must package them in the cramped box when the fiberglass mold is still warm, and when they cool off, you get a nice dented canopy.

Anyway, how many of you also got dented canopies?

Did Align replace it for you, or were you able to get the dent out somehow???

Thanks.

mine was the same way extremely bad on both side,
Easy fix, mount it on the heli and using a heat gun warm it up and the dents will come right out.

Take a hair dryer to it and it will go right back to shape. I did it with mine, but I used my propane heater.

It took all of 15 secs and it goes back to shape by itself.

Mine too. Just used monokote gun and dents popped right out. Didn't even mount it when I did it. Another friend did the same thing with hair dryer and worked perfect.

Did you all heat it from the inside I presume? Is Align getting sloppy? I think when you have too fast of a growth, as a company, attention to detail starts lacking...

I heated on the outside, your not going to hurt anything, just put the hair dryer or heat gun far enough away to get it nice and warm it will come out.

^^^ha ha. That's funny. I have no idea what a stock canopy is. Get a custom canopy and forget it! Be original

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Dented 700LE Canopy

Mine was the same, also two mates of mine had the same problem, canopy squished up insdie the box so tight that the left hand side was dented, however touch of heat from the hair drier did the trick.

Heat up the canopy and stuff a shirt inside it, those will pop out.

You think Align would learn after all the first Trex 600 canopies that were shipped bent.
