Mine just came in today. It will be nice to have some better visibility and be able to fit batteries in the heli without denting the canopy!

I went with the green, orange, white combo. Looks sharp!

Default how long??

I put my order in to Fusuno about 8 days ago and haven't heard anything back from them as of yet. i was just wondering how long it took some of you guys from the time of payment to the time of getting it painted and a pic sent your way for approval? thanks for your help, i just REALLY want that damn thing.
Thanks again!

Similar here, Scooba...they have their act together....

The only thing we must be aware of, is that VN has different holiday seasons that we do..

And you can google this and time your order accordingly......

FWIW

Default I love mine

I have bought two of them and love them... when you order from their site they give you the option to put your name or whatever on the canopy for no additional cost...I thought that was cool.

I will say they look great, if you order from the UK you need to be prepared to wait. I put an order in three weeks ago and only got confirmation it had been shipped from Vietnam yesterday!

Hopefully it would have been worth the wait. Does anyone know who else does canopies for the 450x?

All the best tydon

Wow, I think I really do like that stratovarious design. I am trying to decide whether to bling the heli up at all.

Can I ask:

1. How much does the EX canopy version weigh

2. Is there enough clearance for a scorp 2221-6?

On the stock Blade canopy the motor just sits under the canopy - I didn't mount the scorp on a washer, opting instead to trim the pinion for clearance and trim the motor shaft.

1) Canopy weights:

Stock "Blue" = 24.24g
Stock "Smokey" = 24.08g

Fusuno "Red Racing" = 47.69g
Fusuno "Infinite Fire" = 40.41g

2) I don't have a scorp..still using the stock motor....

When either of my Fusuno canopies are mounted on my 450X.....there is > ~1" of clearance between the top of the stock motor...and the inside of the canopy....measured at either the motor shaft end to the canopy...or the edge of the motor to the canopy.

I realize that the 3600kv Blade motor and the scorp are "taller" than the stock 440H motor....

FWIW

The E-Flite 450 motor fits under my EX canopy just fine.

spykez wants a Fusuno, but wants to make sure it fits over a scorp.....the scorp is taller than stock ref'd from the mounting bolts....

Right, I'm running the E-Flite heli 450 motor, not the stock 440H motor. Plenty of clearance.

Actually, now that I recall FTF had his scorps done the way I have, he's got Fusuno's so I'll probably be ok.

Got the 2221-6/11T 3D on my flybarred 450 3D, lol - it worked fine driven by a YEP 45A (YGE clone)/ Very frisky. Too frisky to tell you the truth hahaha.... The bad is the flight time will probably turn out to be between 3:30 and 4:00 I think based on my preliminary 3 lipos.

Stock canopy fits fine.

I have a scorpion-8 in my Blade 450 with the Fusuno 450-EX canopy, and there's lots of room to spare. I even raised the motor mount 3.5mm, and it isn't even close.
