I think that it's not going to work with 450. When flying inverted or going down really fast it's going through the blades and that's not good.

hey i just found this thread last sunday and since i orderes an mcpx i started doin some canopies, and after some practice they work on 450磗 too all depends on what materials you use, i just made a paper-cardboard canopy for mine and it looks good, fit just right with battery mounted and the canopy looks secure and strong, and also feels stiff like my other 450 canopies, i just weight them and the paper-cardboard one weights 32gr and my original canomod weights 33.7gr so isnt bad at all, now i only wich some one can change the letters in blue that say 创mcpx创 for 创450pro创 or something that includes 450, and where it says 创blade创 for 创align创 plz, enjoy 3d flight with it coming soon!

Send me the file, preferably in .pdf or photoshop format, but common picture formats are okay too, and I will see if I can do something to change the logos -- time permitting.

By chance does anyone have any templates and textures for the Mcpx original canopy that they are willing to share? the links in the earlier post no longer work. To clarify, I am refering to the canopy and texture in post #65.

here are the ones ive done so far, i must admit i love the last one, the one that appears to the side of a 130x because is the easiest to make and gives the best visibility in the air, you can see in the video that is easy to see the orientation of the heli in the entire video

Can someone point me to the instructions for folding the tdr canopy? I've gone through 20 pages and have found instructions for everything else but the trd. Would be much appreciated.

Default How to mount the printed vertical tail without using the stock tail

Thanks for the canopy.
A simple way to mount the printed tail is to just glue the 2 sides together then mount it onto the tail motor block using one of the screws from the end of the feathering shaft, without using the stock plastic tail. See pics.
Just drill a tiny hole onto the left side of the plastic tail block for the screw.
This way you can easily change the tail to match the canopy.

Any chance you could post up a vector file? I tried to open the PDF in AI, but it looks like it's a raster file. I could trace myself, but thought I'd ask first.

Thanks, and great work!

I think you're the person to do it.

I doubt many would know what a raster file is...or how to recreate the artwork in vector format.

That's the only issue...is that the artwork is pretty pixelated for my taste.

If we are talking about the goblin canopy I am half way through vectorising it. It takes a lot of time because of the gradients and all the effects, but I am working on it.

Please feel free to attempt a version though, I am not really confident with the results so far..

Hey, Daryoon! Yeah, was worth a shot asking, though. The template itself looks "official"...curious where it came from.

@gionir:
I was actually referring to this particular canopy and the cutting/folding guides. I'm in the middle of vectorizing it right now as well as one for the Goblin. I was planning on making high-resolution templates @300DPI for use in Photoshop, since that's where most people would end up working on them anyway.
