Flying with the stock canopy comes with so many problems. The biggest problem is not being able to access neither the fuel line, needle adjustments, or glow plug without having to remove the canopy. Also, the stock canopy entrapes so much of the engined-warmed air, not allowing for adequet cooling. So......

After seeing how Heliproz cut a small section out of the bottom of their canopy, I did that, and then did some more. I cut the entire bottom 1/3 off the canopy, all the way around. And it actually looks pretty good! I can finally access everything with the canopy on. It should also save a slight bit of weight.

I'll be doing a short article with pictures very shortly at:

http://www.Caliber30.com

This mod is just temporary until I can get a hold of one of those new FRP canopies sold through Pacific Rim Heli's (when they get more in).

Happy hovering,

Jesse

Pacific Rim Heli's sells them, but they have been out of stock for a while now. Their website is http://www.PacRimHelis.com, but the Shop section of it does not currently work. I'm working on finding out why...

You're right about the new Kyosho canopy, I've seen it at Tower Hobbies, but for over $100, I don't think so! They're also out of stock...

I have Kyosho’s FT and Love it!! I got it for $40.00 from Tower when they first came out. Now they are $110.00. You can get it from CyberHeli for $74.99 it’s the best looking 30 size out there in my opinion. The one from Pacific Rim is nice and allows easy access to everything but it’s not near as good looking.
