Normalt Fusuno canopys looks awfull in my point of view, but that looks very nice indeed. If they can fit it with a cool looking paintschem we got a winner

FUSUNO before focused on fuselage. After with new management, FUSUNO is now joining with Canomod to focus fully on canopies only. They will release many new designed canopies with very good airbrush at very low price such as the 49usd T-REX 700 canopies and many more to come like the Blade 400 canopy attached.

They also can do new design with different looks than stock canopies as the ones you see above. Many designs will come soon.

Looks great but let's also design it so there is more room underneath for the battery. Things are pretty tight with the stock canopy.

Looks cool but as other have said - need more room up front for bigger batteries. This one looks like it has less room?

Yes, I like the idea of painted B400 canopies very well! Please do so, but as aforementioned, PLEASE MAKE MORE BATTERY SPACE. Keep them coming

it looks small but it is actually provides bigger room for bigger packs as it is longer than stock canopy. That's the first requirement of this design.

steve , if what you say is correct , FUSUNO / Canomod will take over the Custom Canopy market and anyone who distributes them will reap the benefits....

They might be looking boring to you, but I like the T-Rex Align canopy designs.

each person has his/her own taste. That's why there are many designs for each own favorite.

Here are some FUSUNO designs for the stock canopy that you may like.
