Fusuno and Canomod had ones for most helis way back last year...

The thing is they didn't rip it off perfectly they made it lots uglier than the original. lol Probally not on purpose. I LOVE my L700 and the canopy shape is GREAT and the colors on the L700 are SUPER visible.

I just am not a fan of the Tron theme. After Oat finishes up my L700 canopy he'll give them something to rip off worth doing.

Local friend has 130X canopy that looks like my L700XX.

Yes im the theif that had Fusuno make the first copy for my 600 a week after the Xtreme came out. I liked the look, and like the saying goes "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"

I guess to each their own and the thread wasn't to pick on anyone other than Fusuno. I was just surprised to see such an unusual paint scheme copied to the same category of product. I understand paint schemes are copied all of the time and it is more and more difficult to come up with a true original.

It would be nice to see more people have their own design though. Almost all of the top r/c car drivers and airplane performers have their own paint scheme they can be easily recognized by. I know of very few who are still doing that in the Heli world.

Of course my 2013 canopies will be a copy of something already done

Fusuno has been a shameless cloner for a long, long time. When I first got into the hobby a few years ago, some guy who makes scale fuselages flat-out busted them on using his product as a mold.

I haven't seen much reason to make a stink about them, but I've just steered clear of doing business with them or their closest partners.

If stuff like this isn't bad for their brand, there's no reason at all for them to show any restraint.
oops, bounced it!

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but I'm not sure why anyone would want copy this pattern (with horizontal lines and all).
