Hi guys!

I'm trying to get some information on canopy weights. I did try contacting HeliDirect, Fusuno and Canomod for this information but received no reply. So, I'm hoping that someone with a canopy and a gram scale can help me out. Can you weigh your T700 canopy(s) for me? I'll take whatever data I can get on any models - especially Fusuno and Canomod type 1 and 2. (It makes a big difference with CG)

Thanks!

So far:

Align LE canopy 137g
Fusuno Type 1 Stryker 136g
Fusuno Type 2 Revenge 137g
Fusuno Type 2 Green Isl 180g

43g difference?

Huge difference, especially for a FBL machine.

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

Howdy Jeff!

Yeah my 700 seems to have lost its flybar.

The type 2 canopies also cary their weight a bit further forward due to the fact that they are roughly 3" longer.
