I ordered a vision 50 competition and should have it this week. Do the most recent ones come with just a white canopy? I have seen some people got both a white one and the red and black that is advertised with their kits and I have seen some people say only a white one comes with it.

What will I be receiving? I will probably end up getting an aftermarket canopy anyway but I am curious. Since elyq advertises a "painted fiberglass canopy" I think it is kind of bs if they only give you a "painted" solid white canopy.

Looks like plain white from most accounts I have found. Apparently they come with plastic main grips too which is really lame...kinda bummed

There are a few different versions of the vision 50. The new version kits come as you see in this link: http://elyq.com/en/v50_versions.php

The plastic grips are only with the kit that is at a very cheap price!

The vision XE is the fully upgraded Competition model which comes with the stated white canopy + also painted canopy.

I got my Vision-50c from the first run last year. It came with a plain white fiberglass canopy and a full metal head, including those great looking grips.

I will be sure to post some pics of what shows up. I can't find anything online about the newest versions aside from the press release elyq put out.

I am hoping I get the older kit with the metal grips but I kind of doubt I will.

It looks like the kit you have purchased is from stock the shop had before the creation of the new vision 50 versions. This will only contain the white canopy but will have the metal blade grips!

That is what I am hoping for. I don't really mind the white canopy since I will buy an after market one anyway. The grips are my biggest concern. I can convert the metal grips to flybarless but if I get the plastic ones I would have to buy metal grips to go flybarless. I am just not a fan of plastic grips also.

UPS says I should have it Friday...hopefully with metal grips...fingers are crossed
