I haven't seen them, but does anyone make quick release canopy mounts? I need to tighten mine down with a hex driver or they vibrate loose during flight. I've lost several. Do any of the ones made for other helis work with the N9?

Thanks

Try the SE thumbscrews.
They work much better & don't come loose.

Some of the ones I have are the SE, not sure which ones have come loose though...

The shank on the SE ones is longer so it bottoms out on the standoff & locks up.

I always used a hex driver to tighten them anyway, but the standard ones still came loose.
Never had a problem after fitting the SE ones.

Here's a very worthwhile mod to the canopy standoffs. Canopy mod thread The pictures toward the bottom of this thread by RR member thenewguy is the mod I'm referring to. It seems the original thread pictures were deleted but you will see it in the above thread. This mod combined with the SE thumb screws will make the grommets last a long time. I have not had a SE thumb screw come loose.

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

I may try using Vibe and Trex canopy pins. They are pointed and the grommets slip over them. No screws or threading. The srandoffs mount with a 3mm screw thru the frames existing holes.
