Arizona Heli Canopies
Anybody tried them? I need suggestions, and I like two of their canos, but I'm not gettin 2 YET, so.... here they are, the first one is for the rappy 90 'Raptor 60/90 #R6P17' and this one for the evo 'Sceadu #SCP05'. Other suggestions may be considered. Here is their website [url=http://www.arizonaheli.com/painted_canopies.htm]

TIA

I have the one right below it (the Raptor) Same design just a different color. It's beautiful!! I just worry about crashing it all the time. Quality is top notch.

Also be sure to check out Ace Heli's store here on Runryder. Scott is a great guy! I also have a Freya canopy from him and it is top quality, too!

All of AZ Heli's stuff is good. I only have one on my Raptor. My Freya is from Ace Heli. Be sure to look at the prices. Ace is good stuff. Like I said, I worry about crashing my Raptor...although not so much that I don't enjoy it . Just be sure you won't be in that situation. Nothing worse than having a hangar queen. Personally, I like the Raptor better...just not a fan of the black on the evo.

Mine used to be . I just had to convince myself that if I wasn't flying it, I wasn't enjoying it and I might as well just save the money and use the plastic one. So, if you get, I say fly it and enjoy it!!

I got my first one used and it was nice enough to convince me. Service is as nice as the product. Canopy FX would also be a good choice based on the vendors I've dealt with.

AZ Heli is the best. If you are looking for the quality just go for it. Customer service is the best also.

I have had 5 of the AZ canopies. They are beautiful canopies. Great workmanship.

My problem was that I got them too soon for my skill level, and am now using stock canopies for a while. Yep -- crashed them all a bit too $$$$$ and add on for a crash.

I crashed 3 of them in 4 days. totally unusable after the crash. However they are things of beauty.

When you wax them up, boy are they good looking though.

Get one you won't go wrong.

you can't go wrong with Arizona Heli.

Bill offers incredible service and does a superbe job.

I've seen good paint job from others too, but never tried any other.

Here is the canopy I've bought this summer from AZHeli.

I've owned one of thier cans, looked great at first, paint started cracking around the canopy mount holes, and fiberglass started ovaling out. Service was a low point in my opinion, 3 month back log for a paint job, I've gotten an entire car painted in alot less time.Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.

Well I expect those are normal as you bend and twist the area mentioned when taking off the cano..... I might just go for Arizona, as most people says their service is good, which is my top of the top piroity, and considering they are individually hand painted, 3 months are not that long, but opposite when you are sitting on your doorstep waiting for them.....

My car was individually hand painted, and if I would have had to wait 3 months for that, to say I would be mildly irritated would be an understatment. If I'm going to pay $150 for a canopy, I fully expect it not to crack under what I would consider normal use. I can under stand if it were crashed, but just flying and removal/install no way.Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.

Maybe you misunderstood me, I'm not trying to start a flaming session..... That happens to me all the time, but they are bleach bottle canos, so they flex a lot, but once I upgrade to fibreglass, I'm gona change the posts to the thumb screw type, so the cano doesn't have to flex as much.Evo 50, Rappy 90, T-Rex on the bench, need rebuilding

Mine has taken "only" 45 days from the email I sent to pass the order to the day it was in my hand, including a 5 days shipping (I live in Montreal/Canada)

Not 3 months at all. I ordered it when I did not need it. I guess if you crash and you need another one, it's kinda long. But I have an old spare one I would use if it ever happens...
