I really like the looks of the Fusuno canopies and am thinking of getting 1 (or 2) for my 450X. However, I notice the top opening is not as wide as the stock canopy. I wonder if this affects the cooling of the motor in any way. The reason I say this is because I notice that my motor temps are lower when the 450X is up in the air and then right after I land and the blades stops spinning the temps shoot up around 5 degrees (from about 46 to 51C). It appears that the wash from the blades have a cooling effect on the motor. I have telemetry installed (TM1000) on the 450X with the motor temp wire/sender slung at the base of the motor.
