Everyone has his own taste. That's why there are more to come, designed by FUSUNO, specifically for T-REX 500, inspired by Ferrari F1.

Very soon available.

You know, I thought that at first also. Im not sure how the Trex conopy looks, but I'm liking the shape of the HDX conopy after seeing them both in person. It may be the way the HDX sits lower and sleeker than the trex. dunno.

Those look OK. You guys should talk to Canomod about making some Trex500 canopy's. They do excellent airbrush work. I'll definately place an order for one of those.

So, where is Canomod hiding the 500 canopies? I still wish they'd take their 600N canopies and provide the same paint schemes for the 600E

It also annoys that they don't respond to email. Love their canopies, not so much their support...

Canomod already has one canopy for the 500 showing on thier website. Looks pretty good and the price is not too steep at $69.99. Personally, I want the metal tail and mixing arms before any canopy bling.

Any idea what the weight of the HD all metal tail is vs the current stock plastic?

Thanks

These new canopies look great and I like the more open bottom for better cooling.

The real question will be---how well do the batteries fit in them--are they as tight as the stock canopies?

Bob, waiting for your appraisal

Thanks, Newbie George

-> Helidirect

Do you know if they are exactly the same size or just a little bit bigger to make room for the larger batteries that people seems to be flying?
