Hi Everyine, I was wondering what the best way to cut and paint the white stock raptor canopy? Thank you for all the help.

....easy...don't bother painting...cut with a sharp xacto knife, scissors or even a dremel.

Find some decals/stickers. I like to edge the stickers with CA to keep the nitro and oil from seeping underneath causing the sticker to lift.

Go fly.

If you want a pretty canopy, go buy a pre-painted fiberglass one.

Don't worry about paint. Wash the canopy, do some "flashing" of the Plastic, and use vinyl. A clear coat over the top and it will look like this:

That's pretty cool.

I have an old Trex 600N canopy that is made from white plastic - and I never used it because I could never figure out how to paint it.

I'll they this on it - what do I have to lose?
