Helihobby sells white conopies. I dont think anyone sells them unless you ask for a custom made one from the canopy makers(dont know who they are). OR you can make your own out of a plastic bottle (more durable)*SNIFF* ahhhhh..the smell of fresh new blades *SNIFF*

Given the amount of orange peel on that body, it looks like it was painted from the outside, so why would you need a clear blade body to paint it like your old rex?www.tleone.com

Uhh thats not orange smart A##, so yea you need to check your colors.

I had one of the nicest looking helis on the field. Anyway does anybody know if a 450X would fit on it, since it is slightly smaller then the XL version?

I didn't say it was the color orange.

I said orange peel. Meaning I can see the roughness of the paint OUTSIDE of the body, indicating that it was painted from the OUTSIDE.

So then I asked, why would you need a clear blade body since he painted his rex body from the OUTSIDE.

Seems pretty straight forward to me, don't know why everyone is getting their panties in a bunch.

everyone else... i never said anything, i know what you mean, but if you cant be nice about it then why say anything, just help him out and answer his question, no need for comments like " i can tell thats painted from the outside, look at the orange peel" not everyone is good at painting, but if you dont think it looks good you didnt have to reply to it at all. and personally i think it looks good

The paint is not orange-pealed, but uses a reflective metalic flake.

I've done this on quite a few R/C car bodies. Two ways of doing this. One way is to first lay down a candy color, then the flake mied with clear, and then a backing coat. White, black, silver, or gold give some very different effects.

Laying down the flake first, then the candy color, and then the backing color give an "in your face" type of effect.

I give the original poster credit for his creativity on his canopy. It is a good job.

Was the Trex canopy clear to begin with? If so was it painted on the inside or outside?

I don't interpret tonyxcom's comments as being critical at all - Just observant and inquisitive.

The whole purpose of most people wanting a clear lexan type canopy is to apply the paint to the inside to easier achieve a smooth professional looking paint job and avoid the difficulties of having to apply a clear coat to get it.

Viewing the pictures posted it looks a lot to me like the paint was applied to the outside of the canopy as tonyxcom commented - If the Trex canopy was indeed painted from the outside and he wanted to do the same with another canopy then the only reason to seek a clear canopy would be for a transparent windscreen which the Trex canopy pitcured does not have.

Not that you have to explain yourself to anyone - But the vagueness makes the question and the unknown reason for the question perplexing to some.

Actually if you scroll down you'll see the trex canopy was cut out, the first pic was after first painting and yes its a metallic flake paint.


Anyway ima still need a body lol, so if anybody has any ideas let me know.

Considering that you guys are arguing over the color of the canopy and stuff like that, you all have gone far, far, far away from the main question. If there isnt a clear canopy(which I real dont think there is one) all you had to say was no or yes there is one "Website.com" SIMPLE AS THAT*SNIFF* ahhhhh..the smell of fresh new blades *SNIFF*

TRex4life originally asked...

Anybody know where I can get a clear body to paint For the Blade CP....


I think the thread lost focus too... but I am curious also to his question.
Is there a clear body/canopy available for the "Blade CP"?

The last 2 links are for a Trex canopy.
Or does it fit the BCP easily? Did not think it would?


curious too,
Frolin

A trex body fits the BCP with 0 mods and gives much more room.
