Thought I'd share with you 7HV'ers my new Lid that I create with a CF vinyl wrap...It actually makes the Canopy stronger on crashes. Cooler ESC and Motor with the meshed holes!... Being said that, I have another one(diff design and colour) that I use all summer and had a crash on it, not a big crash, but head sideways first, and the damage on the Canopy was just a scratch or gouge on the side! Heli damage was just the FBL Tube, Main Shaft, and Blades(of course!) Remove the one side vinyl, replace, and it looks like nothing happened, it actually covers the scratch except for the lighter scratch on the part where there's no vinyl....Hope you guys like it!... Thanks for looking!

Cool!
Is this a DIY project? If so can you explain your equipment and supplies for printing?

CF Vinyl
No Printing!...made a template first, mark holes on canopy and cut. Put template back in to make sure holes lined up with the template. The racing checkered are all CF vinyl cut and assembled in another wax paper , held together with a transfer paper or small pieces of med stick masking tape to hold together once lifted out of the wax paper! Spray with Water/soap solution to be able to slide and align!...First time I made one, without the checkered pieces, it took me a week cause I wanna make sure I don't waste the canopy!... This one took me from cutting the template, cutting the squares and assembled, make the holes, total of 8 hours!...I don't mean 8 hours on the bench, total hours altogether!
