Default 700N Canopy Mounts

Who makes the best quick release or threaded 700N Canopy mounts? Lost one of my threaded ones at the field today?

Rc Booya... Little pricey, but good quality and easy to use.

I've tried several different types and the Quickuk magnetic ones are the best in my opinion. They hold really well, pull off in seconds, look cool and are bulletproof. Maybe I just had bad luck but I went through 2 sets of the rc booya ones with the little bearings falling out. And the screw in ones are ok but not as easy to use and can be misplaced.

I really like the QuickUK thumb screws. Not as quick as the magnetic, but they will not come off in flight(most important part)
I personally hate yanking at the canopy to get it off and maybe damaging the paint job, so that's why those are my choice.

The magnetic ones will not come off in flight, in fact I had a big crash a while ago and the four mounts were still attached, while one corner of the canopy was almost completely torn through. Also to take the canopy off it just takes a gentle push from the inside to separate the magnetic grip.

The best part, and maybe it's just me, is no more loss of skin on the hot pipe when trying to unscrew and remove the mount right next to the pipe.

Here is a link:

I am using them for my Fusuno 6hv canopy as well, and very happy with how they fit/work.
