I received a nice gift of a canomod canopy for christmas and am unsure of the fit.

I have been eyeballing it for over an hour and no matter how I place it, it looks goofy(back end too high), or it will have to be modified to fit around the swash. This is even "opening" it enough that is has a huge gap in back. Regardless, im not nearly as happy as the fit of mikado, or even fusano canopies on my logos.

Ive done this on about 20 other canopies, but this one just doesnt seem right.

Anyone else have this experience, or advice?

Ive decided to test fit another before I made holes, and ordered a cheap hk lid.

Today I received a turnigy logo 600 canopy shipped out of hong kong.

It was less then 1/3 price and better quality of the canomod lid my wife so proudly gave me for xmas, and it fits as it should!

All my other actual mikado logo canopy's have always fit, the only issue Ive ever had was getting my first custom logo canopy.

I doubt I will ever order a canomod canopy again.

So long as you are happy is the main thing.

I ordered a Logo canopy for my Logo 500 from hobby king and it is made out of very, very thick fiberglass that I will not bother to use it. The quality is quite poor.

I do however have a Fusuno canopy and it is very good. I find the Mikado canopy brittle and the Fusuno one is very flexible. I guess Mikado put a hard gel coat on and it cracks very easy. Fusuno didn't and also made it as light as they could.
