How are you guys attaching aftermarket canopies on Raptors? Do you use the normal rear grommets and the body clip, the rear grommets and the front holes or maybe both front and rear holes plus the body clip?

I have a Mavrikk fiberglass canopy from heliproz.com and it comes with the standard Raptor mounting hardware. Grommets in the rear and plastic clip in the front. It works great, looks great, and saves some weight.

On the Canomod canopies I received, they have the front spots for grommets and they appear to match the front "canopy support" holes in the Raptor radio tray. I was wondering about some sort of aftermarket studs that might exist to tie the canopy in at that location too, to help with potential vibration cracking?

depends on what "style" canopy you get. The one that is the same exact shape as the stock bleach bottle canopy fits exactly the same way. If you get the newer "3d" shape, it requires different mounting. You can get the mounting from HeliProz.

this is the one, sorry no picture
