I pressed the button on a E550 3 blade today. I have been out of heli's for about 6 years. Instead of dusting off the 90 3d and Raptor 50 Titan thought I would join the flybarless crowd. I am reading through all the threads I can find but while doing that are there any thing I should be aware of. Also not to keen on the standard canopy and think I will go for an after market fibreglass canopy. There is not very much available for the E550 but there are options available for the X50. Can anyone confirm they are the same.

Can't say if they are the same but over the years , I've retrofitted many canopies from different manufacturers to fit a particular application.....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

The E550 canopy is the same as the standard Raptor 50.

The Align Trex 600E (but not the nitro) canopies also fit. I'm using an Trex 600E fibreglass canopy on my Raptor E550, fits perfectly.
