I liked those blades before I crashed them. If I didn't like trying as many different blades as possible, I would buy another set.

Love that canopy, I'm flying the same one.
Running the RJX blades on mine, they fly great for $22...


Weather permitting, I'll snap a pic when I go out tonight.

Go to Helidirect. Under categories select canopy and fuselage.Hit canopy and then find Blade.From there select 450 class and you are there.Sorry I don't know how to post a link from this phone.

Not sure if you're talking about a particular canopy or just the manufacturer's selection. Here are the premade ones they offer, but it should be noted that you can pretty much request any color scheme you want if you order from Fusuno directly. For instance, say you like the scheme on some canopy they show for a T-Rex 450, they will put it on your 450X canopy if you want. Or say you like a certain scheme but would like to change a certain part of it to be another color...etc. You can also have your name, AMA # or whatever printed on the canopy as part of the paint job. The only drawback there is you pay a premium shipping cost to have it shipped from Vietnam.

http://fusuno.com/index.php?cPath=931_610_791

Helidirect has a few that can save you on shipping if you don't want to customize it and they have one you like in stock. They have them categorized strangely so you have to look at the 450 3D and the 450X pages to see them all, but they are interchangeable on those models. I recommend the "EX" style because they have more room for bigger batteries.

http://www.helidirect.com/blade-heli..._2016_2094.hdx

I've even heard it suggested that the hop-up fiberglass canopies sold by Blade/Horizon are actually Fusuno canopies, but I don't know that to be true myself. Horizon does like to farm things out so it wouldn't surprise me.

Tommy if you email [email protected], they'll cook up a custom canopy for you, you just tell em what you want, they'll send you a pic of roughly what it'll look like and you can seal the deal. Bit costly, but nice, I guess. Only done it once, for the only scale ship in my fleet, a 130X with a logo Xxtreme canopy lol! Always wanted a logo 700! So I asked and they delivered.

They did a nice job. You pay by paypal and unfortunately you wait a bit, it is a custom job after all. I think it took abt a month from initial enquiry.

I'll see if I can find a pic or show it to you IRL. Where do you fly?

One of the reviewers on HD states that the blades don't fold back all the way on his T-Rex 450 because they hit the edges of the blade grips (pic provided). Are you able to fold them back all the way on the Blade 450X?

Ya I found that out myself. I'm gonna custom make my own blade holder as soon as I find some material. Any ideas where to get some material like the original stuff?

Thanks. That's a deal breaker for me since I store mine in a case and it likely wouldn't fit if the blades don't fold all the way in.

But as far as constructing your custom blade holders...

One idea I had was to use a cheap neoprene mouse pad. You might have to cut it and glue two pieces together to double it up in order to get it stiff enough.

Another idea might be to cut up one of these foam "kneeling cushions" or a cheap Yoga mat.

Or those mats you sit on and carry in your backpack.

May also visit a "builders store" (insulation mats).
