Custom Blade 550 X canopy by Fusuno Canopy

If you can dream it, they can airbrush it!

I mainly use my Blade 550 X as a 3D student training machine and wanted a canopy that would stand out. So I decided to turn to Fusuno Canopy since I've used Thrm many times in the past on other helicopters I've owned. I really enjoyed the look of Fusuno's new "Crownie" canopy design but was looking to add a little Monster touch. I E-mailed Fusuno my ideas to make a custom canopy one off design for my Blade 550 X and this is what their designers had come up with. They sent me a sketch back just hours after my initial email request. I gladly accepted the design and a few days later they sent me a picture of the canopy in base cost waiting my approval before going to the final clear coat stage. So cool to see an idea I had in my head come to life.

BUILD TIME / SHIPPING

I was amazed at how fast they were able to complete my custom order. From canopy concept design, to paint, to approval, and clear I had my custom canopy in about two weeks. The shipment was very well packed and wrapped insuring that no damage would occur during shipping. They first wrap the canopy in paper, followed by a double layer of bubble wrap, and finish by filling in any voids in the box and canopy with foam peaces. I ordered a custom canopy on October 26th 2013 and I received my order on November 9th 2103. I paid $100 shipped for the canopy to my door.

FIT AND FINISH

The quality is Amazing! The colors are highly visible and really Pop off the canopy. I feel the colors I chose really accent themselves well. The pilot names are not stickers, they are actually painted! Great job Team Fusuno!

Fusuno vs Stock canopy

CONCLUSION

If you want an affordable, clean, quality canopy why don't you give a Fusuno canopy a try. Whether your looking for a sub micro canopy for a Blade Nano or a 700 nitro canopy Fusuno has you covered! The quality of your products, and outstanding customer service is what keeps me coming back time and time again. I believe this is my fifth canopy and am already thinking about another design for a future canopy.

Thanks

Well with daylight savings time here we are left to only two days a week to fly and we are left to the mercy of Mother Nature. Yesterday was pouring rain and sleet all day and today was 45mph 34 degree winds and rainy clouds but I snuck outside to get a flight in on my new Fusuno canopy !

I only FLY on days that end in "Y"
