I think my favorite would have to be Fusuno and F-Nine. Who is you favorite? Here is my sexy TDR with a F-Nine canopy

My Avant is a beauty with the Fusuno lid...One of my favorites ever.

But the #1 favorite was the one Steve Blizzard did for my Trex 500.
He goes by helipainter on some forums and kloner on others.

Avant...

Trex 500 with Kloner lid,fins and blades...

I literally never use the word literally right.

Thanks guys!

You see the odd colored tail blades and tail fin in my last pic?lol...

The canopy survived the crash ok but the tail fin didn't

He painted me another one for free since I was the first customer and spread the word for him pretty well.lol...

Only problem....the design he and I came up with for my heli turned into a cookie cutter for the majority of the following customers

I know! Right?
Kloner charged me $80 for ALL the paint on my 500 but like I said...I was maybe the first paying customer and got a helluva deal.

Are you guys kidding me about Fusuno??? ROFL Fusuno and Canomod are owned by the same person and done in the same place.

Put up either beside a Insane Canopy and it is a piece of GARBAGE!

Scott Milton is a GREAT guy to work with and I have had him do one for me. The airbrush talent of Insane Canopy/Sick Canopy is second to none. All of the IC/SC canopies are real epoxy glass canopies and are not he super soft, jelly junk Fusuno/Canomad puts out. Also all IS/SC are from the REAL OEM canopies. Fusuno/Canomod make their own. A TDR canopy from F/C is NOT, I REPEAT NOT shaped like a real one from Jan. IC/SC is 100% dead same.

Fusuno/Canomod does OEM for SAB and MA as we all know. They are 1000 times higher volume than IC/SC.

For just flat out skill nothing is close to IS/SC. Dave Yost was as good as IC/SC, but it was not worth it for him to continue.

Fusuno/Canomod is low grade high volume. ET Hobby which does Mikado canopies is VERY good and much better than Fusuno/Canomod. WAY above.

IS/SC is not about high volume, they are about high end pure custom. People will argue price. This not about price it about talent and nothing close to IS/SC in model helicopters that does for public sales that I know of.

Service is spectacular from IC/SC too. I have bought MANY from IS/SC and will never buy from Canomod/Fusuno again. I did recently.

Anyway in the air nobody can tell them apart. You gonna fly or stick it in a glass case and stare at it. Use the savings on performance.

Who is your favorite not best
The question was who is your favorite. Anyway the best canopy is the one you like and own. Not the best quality or most costly one.
