Try a custom motorcycle shop in your area or look at Fusuno canopies they do great work

I had Fusuno do a canopy for me for my Trex 500 and had my name put on it it was very reasonably priced shipping was $30 and I had it in my hand in 4 days form placing the order......4 days from VietNam.
I was very pleased and would buy another one. They will do custom canopys and work with you on designing it and color and graphics layout....

By the way , I work in the auto body and paint business and we couldnt paint and do the graphics for less than a $1000.
So its a good deal for what you get and the quality is good but there are some flaws in the work at times....

artimus, Same here. I paint my own, but to professionally paint a canopy for someone else's RC Heli definetly cost a fortune. Plus many don't realize the time involved.

Also, people don't realize what we pay for professional materials and paint these days.

I have many contact me, and I just state I don't do it. It's best to handle it this way all of the time, as it usually ends up in a bad situation.

In my area, I know probably the best in the business, and to paint a canopy, the starting price would be around $500.

To give you an idea, I had a custom rifle stock painted with graphics. It cost ME $800 to do it, but it's one of the finest stocks around.

I wish there was an alternative, and if there was, I am sure I would know about it.

custom painting

Thanks for the awesome info. And yes i figured it would cost for a professional to custom paint it, I didn't realize it was that much. So I sent fusno a email and described what I wanted and they emailed me a graphic design of what I requested and the price is $69.00, Since you guys are recommending them, I think I will order through them! And again thank yall for the awesome info.

I don't see how.

The paint additive would cost me more than $69.00, not to mention the paint.

Just a thought. Look for a local Tshirt airbrush artist. I've had laptops, tool boxes, and helmets painted by some awesome artists over the years. and you can usually get paint samplers from local automotive paint supply shops for like $5 a color.
