I've tried both...the "small" strap is the best for the 450X or the 300X. The "medium" strap is way too wide for the slot in the frame and the length is too long which requires you trim the strap and leaves less velcro exposed.

Love it! I have been using that canopy on my 450x and 300x but the orange dye is really something.

so many different styles and colors, it blows the mind. However, I'm trying to keep mine all stock. This is what I've come up with.

Got to try out my new Manucian canopy today. I am quite pleased with the visibility. The best I have had yet. The pics don't even come close to doing the canopy justice.

Well spotted! I can only think that was an "oops"! I had a friend who put flybar blades on a flybarless heli - it made it VERY twitchy!

Actually, I will admit that the purchase was accidental on my part. When I got them and realized that they were the FB blades, I researched the issue, and found that apparently it is somehwat popular for guys on bigger helis to intentionally run the FB blades on FBL heli. They basically stated that it was like running non-bullet blades (the FB blades) vs bullet blades( the FBL blades) on a smaller bird, and I have to agree now that I have flown them.

I would not call them overly twitchy though. They are plenty stable, and yet still turn on a dime. Yesterday I was doing full speed runs and slamming it into a flip to stop. Talk about slamming on the brakes! I did not notice ant bad behavior from them at all.

I actually dig these blades, and see zero reason to not fly them. At some point, I'm going to swap them with a set of Rail 326 blades, just because I like to try new things.

Got a couple of better pics today:

I'm running them to and for a novice such as myself, I can't tell a huge differenc between fb/fbl blades, at least Revolution brands. I haven't tried anything other than that as a comparison between fb/fbl.
I like them....so I fly 'em!

I'm no pro but I noticed it's just like the pro's mention. Like the difference between bullets and non bullet blades in the littler birds.

So far... So good with this heli. It has flown great right out of the box and I'm very happy with it.

No complaints, but I'm not flying very fast and/or far away yet. Still in the relative early stages of this hobby.
