Default New T-REX 700 canopy!

If you don't like the plain look of T-REX 700, here is the new one.

What is new about the shape, can you make a comparison shot so it is more clear?

It has a slimmer look like a synergy. I like it.

OK, new one from where?

Is this an image from Align or just a concept that you have?

Sorry, but comments like that have to be quantified or they ain't worth s*!t !!!!

these are new concept from Fusuno. Once it is finalized, it will be produced together with Canomod versions.

As many people complaint that the trex 700 canopy doesn't have a mean look and they need a new canopy, this may be their alternative.

Thanks for the reply!

Without that reply it could have been anything!!!

I can see that it's slightly taller and slimmer and sweeps back around the head. Which looks good.

The nose, however, is too much like the Synergy! If I wanted a machine that looks like the synergy, I would have bought a Synergy!

Personally, I would have shaped the nose like the 600. Which is lower and longer than the 700!

Which would then be easily identified as an Align heli.

With this as it is it would be a looky likey!! Which personally I wouldn't touch!

Just my view.

Yes once fusuno produces this, Canomod should have these to paint very soon.

Yeah, 100 TIMES BETTER and might convince me to buy one (700, that is). It looks like the sales have tapered off, now that they are readily in stock. Please post images of REAL canopies once they are available. Then I might think that it's actually (significantly) bigger than my 600!

Yeah I have to agree, that canopy just looks wayyy too small on that heli, doesnt really look like a 90, but besides the canopy the rest of the heli looks pretty nice.
