Default Velocity w/ RC Booya Quick Release Canopy mounts

Here are a few pictures of my Velocity with a set of RC Booya Quick Release canopy mounts. These are a set for a 700N that I used aluminum spacers on to get the proper length. It worked out well. I can quickly and easily get the canopy off and on.

Very nice. The front thumb screws are annoying. This should be a sticky.

I like the function of these mounts and it's good to see they will work on this application. Pretty much the same concept as the quick release I have on my keychain. I know that the parts are well machined and work great but I just don't think they're worth $40+ for the set. But that's just my take on it.

What is the spacers from?

I'm getting me some, it might be 40 bucks, but I'm also saying bye bye to grommets
priceless!

Looks like Vibe 50 spacers.

I'm wondering if the larger diameter of the post will keep the breakaway tabs from breaking as they are meant to? Any thoughts?

Don't they mount to the frame with a 3mm bolt? that should still allow the breakaway tab to do its job.

I just went back and took a close look Kaz, ya know it would be close as the diameter of the spacer appears to be covering most of the breakaway tab, I'm sure the tab would snap but it may also damage the frame as there is not much of a gap between to allow the small tab to bend or break away cleanly between.

Probably wouldn't be too hard to dremel the frames a bit so the canopy standoffs have room to flex without touching the frames.

I wonder if the cone spacer for the boom support upgrade would work, using the taper end against the breakaway tab will definetly allow the tab to break away as designed, just currious if the length is too long to use as a spacer

I changed the front and rear spacers. I used extra finishing caps turned inward for the front and the spacer from the Align 700 Canopy support (HN7078) for the rear. Solves any issue their might have been with the breakaway tabs.

+1, do the key chain mod for $10 since it is the same thing.

To be honest, there are a lot of lazy heli pilots in these parts. I just don't find screwing in four thumb screws to be rocket science. It's more than simple and takes less than 30 seconds.
