full body canopys
what is the point of the full body canopys? i know that not the proper name for them but i keep seeing more and more of them and this is probably a really dumb question but im tired of seeing them and not knowing what they are for other than kinda looking cool/ different
THANKS!

I think they're cool--kind of a different look without all the expense of scale, maybe. How much do they cost anyway?must have been a downdraft

there is a problem with this, but these are just my guesses:

1) bleach bottle material would be too flimsy, you want the fuse to maintain structural integrity at all times otherwise it's aerodynamics will change
2) harder to paint on
3) the cost of the moulds would be horrendous. Everyone says how cheap the plastic helis are, but the moulds for them are a lot of money to make, hence you got to make a decent return for it to be worth your while. Fibre glass moulds are cheaper although more work is involved in making the canopy out of them, but it's not that the fuses are being sold in the tens of thousands!!

so I suppose if fuses were being sold in large quantities people might start doing it, but I still prefer a fibre glass fuse.
