After another msg on here I also wrote to fusano to see if they could do a stratus canopy with 'Spectra G' written on it instead...
the answer I just got was that they'd had another enquiry and so it would be no problem..just pick a canopy style..

..This may be an opportunity for other folk to jump on the canopy-wagon..

Yea, they are great, I have a Fusuno that with "TREX 700G" on it. They will pretty much do what ever you as. As long as your not in a rush. Mine took a month to ship And spent 2 weeks in customs.

I just ordered a Spectra-G canopy from Fusuno. They only had one shown on their site and that was for the Stratus. I asked if they could put Spectra-G on it and they said yes at no extra cost. They then said I could select any paint scheme on their site, not just the Stratus canopy, and they would scale it up for the Spectra canopy.

I was emailing with a person named Joe and he was VERY helpful throughout the ordering/deciding.

I'm hoping it's not a month and a half wait though.

Based on the quick and helpful responses I received I would recommend them.

Hey guys
Does Fusano have canopies for the Spectra or do you have to provide your own? I was looking there at unpainted canopies and didn't notice any...

They mold their own...
THey are different material than the stock fiber/gel canopy I think you are looking for.. Fusuno canopies are thinner and lighter, and flexible..

I provided a new unpainted canopy for one of my spectras that I sold. I ordered it from Ron Lund, who did at that time have them in stock...

Hi Fledgling,

I am looking too for a Preddy canopy. I looked the other day and Helicopter World has the plain white ones for $65 I think. They NEVER have the painted ones in stock. Everywhere I looked they are out of stock. There was one place in Canada that had them but they were almost $60 more.

I asked Fusuno about Predator canopies about 4 months ago and they said they would have them soon. Maybe they were talking about the Radikal... I told them I would buy 4 of them...

Predator Canopies
Guys- thanks for the input.

I've back ordered one of the checker-board colored ones from Century eons ago and have never heard anything back.

Such an idea:

If one were to order several of the new white canopies from Century, do you think that someone like Fusuno would paint them "to order?"

I would think they would rather take 'one' blank canopy and make a mold and then paint them....

Could be wrong tho'

I'd take a fair bet the fusuno or canomod would spray them up..but you have the two-way costs.
I got to be quite quick at a simple rattle-can job on the plain white ones..scrub off, white flexible undercoat, a quick white gloss around the screen area then mask around the screen area with a thin stripe of 3M blue tape, mask the screen, spray the bulk gloss yellow, mask all that and take off the screen mask and mask elsewhere... metallic black screen.. then take off all mask, re-mask just around the underside and mask all but the bottom ... spray bright red... remove mask, add stickers and lacquer all..could be done in a few hours but still 6 cans of spray @ £5-£6 ($9) a can...
