Thinking about resurrecting my two old '99 se helis but need new canopies. Remember seeing an SE with a Stratus canopy mounted. Anyone have some experience so I don't have to reinvent the wheel? Any advice or pics would be helpful. Thanks!

The SE frameset fits in the Stratus canopy fine. It's the fuel tank on the SE that makes it too wide. The issues I see to fit the Stratus canopy to the SE are:

1) front canopy mounts - drill new holes in carbon (or can you use existing holes?) and then making appropriate standoffs.

2) making (or can you buy brackets?) to fit the rear canopy mounts.

3) what fuel tank to buy that will fit in the canopy and still provide decent fuel capacity.

I know it will work with some tinkering. Just wondering if somebody already figured it all out.
