I think I speak for most here, correct me if I am wrong. The new design on the canopy is a huge step forward, but so is the paintjob.

Regardless, thank you so much for adressing this problem and I hope you make tons of money selling thse canopies. Align has seriously understimated the importance of asthetics in this hobby which in my openion is a huge oversight.

Anyway, If you are putting in the effort, why not go for something a little more unique. I would like to see something that is not so rounded, but rather sleek and pointed, streamlined. I know that a number of us here have some artistic sence and would love to work with you guys on a design that works.

Would you be open to posting some possible design ideas for the paintjob? Get the comunity involved to deliver a stunning new canopy?

FYI i think the shape and the flow of the new canopy is brilliant.
Once we release this canopy, we will have several design of paint jobs. We can post so you can take a look before doing production. Also Canomod will have many designs. Sure you will like Canomod canopies. They have great design airbrush jobs.

Thanks for the courage. We will release a few more canopy styles that may fit other taste as well. So stay tunned.

The new canopy for T-REX 500 will be released next week with a few designs.

http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=90595

The T-REX 700 canopy will have prototype end of next week and will have a few designs by the second week of September.

Canomod will have these by the end of September.

There are so many people sending email to ask about these canopies. Quantity will be limited.

Adoniss for the T-REX 700 V2 canopy - OK.

FUSUNO canopies are very strong and flexible. Check out the video. It helps prevent cracks you see on normal canopies.

Damn those are flexible. Im pretty sure my align canopy would have cracked pretty quick. I would like to see the "Blink Blue" for the 700 or something like it. I like the colors.

Will these canopies be pre drilled for the canopy mounts? Love the flexibility vid but not a fan of that windshield paint though.

They have dimples where the canopy mount hole is but it is not pre-drilled. If pre-drilling is a must, I will ask them to pre-drill.

for me , the pre-drilling is not an issue. if they can do it for the same price that's fine but if it will add $ then i'll drill my own. Keep up the great work guy's love the bright colors....
