Canopy complant
I think for the money you should at least get a paintable canopy . On all my other high end kits the canopy was at least paintable with little prep (gel coat ) or smooth surface . This canopy is raw it needs skimmed and prepped like fixing a dent in my car .
I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

You telling me you looked in the box and saw the parts quality and fact almost nothing is plastic and you think the kit was not worth the price???

My canopy and two others didn't need "skimmed" to be painted. primer, sand, paint, then clear.

I had to fill all the tiny pinholes in my canopy before I could paint. But I was okay with it. Just another part of the build process. This thread got me to thinking what this kit would have cost if JR made it?? Maybe $2000 US??

Jeff, I wondered how much you paid for the calibre? If you really mind the canopy so much, you might want to add $89.90 for a painted canopy..LOL..!! US$1290 + US$90= US$1380..

canopy dimples
For the canapy i first lighly sanded and then put a light coat of primer so i could see all the defects. then I circled them with a black marker and used spot putty from autozone to fill in any pinholes and defects. after sanding and cleaning the project i repeated the process once more to make sure i did not miss anything. and that is how i removed the defects from my canopy.

The only probem is that nobody has canopies on stock. Even Kasama can´t deliver. I´m already waiting for weeks now....

Kasama Canopy
Hi,
I had issues of the same type w/ my Kasama that arrived yesterday. The website showed under Specs & Features that you were getting a "Pre-Painted Canopy". I thought I was getting a Orange & Black one like the the website shows, however the Suppliers response was " we don't have any, thats the way Kasama shipped them, and your still getting the free Painted one". (They were running a special on a free canopy if ordered by such & such date.) I figure, that if its a great Heli, and the free painted one looks good...I'll be happy...also I jumped on the 10% Labor Day Sale...which saved me $129.00 off the cost of $1290.00 I did not name the Supplier, but I am happy with the outccome, and their Service, ...unpainted...or...not!
Did anyone get a pre-painted one with their kit? Just curious...

ALL Kasama kits come with the unpainted canopy as DEFAULT. Any painted canopy addition depends on special deals that vary from dealer to dealer.

The 90 (or so) USD yellowish-orange/black optional canopy from Kasama is a very nice quality - no better or no worse that could be expected from eg. Canomod at 100 USD.
