My Freya EX converted to fbl with SSL-II rotor head wants looks better, because original plastic canopy is old and dirty, but I like design. New Frp too expensive.
Also my friends - hirobo fans want it too.
I began making new canopy. I make draft canopy master model from plastic, then add little surface on bottom and sides. Maybe it's possible to hide front part of muffler.
But if can't hide, it maybe cut to original line.
I want make it painted with carbon glass.
Master model finished.
So now I'm on the way to make molds.
First mold is for glass.
In 2016 I make simple molds for turbulence d3 canopy, now I want little bit difficult molds.
Will update with news.

Canopy was born today.
I like how looks with carbon glass.
Weight ~165gr
Without carbon glass will be lighter.
Also if cut sides by original line will be lighter too. I will paint it in next two weeks.
Im thinking about stock Eagle design, but maybe change colours
