Default Paper a glue is your friend

I made a few adjustments to the MD-500 Canopy and made it more of a paper fuselage.

Of the three colors the green was the easiest to for my eye to track. The blue seemed to be the more difficult, especially against a blue sky.

Default mCPx Paper Canopy -- First Aftermarket mCPx Hop-Up?

A while back I made this paper canopy for my MCPX


I've so pleased with its crash ability, even nose diving into concrete, I decided to create an align style one for my brushless conversion.

Ian posted his awesome Logo Xxtreme paper canopy somewhere before. I thought it was one of the mCPX thread. But perhaps I was dreaming.

Here's his Nano CPX version. I remember him just sizing up to get the mCPX sized one.
https://www.helifreak.com/showpost.p...&postcount=419

And his posted on how he goes about cutting and gluing one together:

https://www.helifreak.com/showthread...26#post4963926

I have my own paper canopy making tips with links to video primer here:
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1696633

And my paper canopy topics on my blog site:

edit to add:
I see Ian replied back with the templates. Yay. I had wrote that post in the morning...but didn't hit the send button until know. Kids interrupted and didn't get a chance to sit down at the computer till now.

These are really cool but for the life of me I can't fold them worth a damn.

You can do it. Not easy, requires patience both to cut and to glue together but worth the effort. Gluing does not have to be perfect, you'll crash it anyway.
