I wanted thumbscrews instead of the body clips that the formula canopy standoffs come with...
Here is what I did.

1. Replaced the rear formula standoffs with stock Whiplash Nitro front standoffs.

2. I used the X7 stock canopy front standoffs, cut a 15mm bolt head off to use as all thread and found a washer and spacer that matched the formula standoff length. The X7 stock front canopy mounts are slightly shorter than the formula front standoffs so it was easy to just space it out a little bit. Works like a champ.
