And I am sorry you took that as literally NEW canopies. They are new to me.
thanks, expensive considering that the stock canopy is fragile to begin with and you are not really changing anything but the paint, one crash, and there goes $30 down the pipe.Yikes!

This canopy is actually stiffer than the stock one. Its not all flimsy. I crashed twice so far with it and no problems. TNT will say the same thing. I think he ran it into his house and didnt even scratch the paint. But I love them and thats all that counts.

Here is my Scale contribution. Was trying to have it at IRCHA so I could fly in the Scale section...maybe next year I get about 1 1/2 minutes on a Hobby City battery before the power starts to fade & I have to set it down. Adapted the foam of the box to accommodate it with a Weller soldering gun and the flat blades. I'll post the video from it's maiden flight in the video section, Andy

Nice one :-)
Is it me or the LG is a bit off-centered?
Nice touch on the battery holder.
On my conversion I thought about using the two "side-cars" as battery holders and disgise the lipos as furniture

How does the alu tail boom hold in crashes? Did you try a solid carbon rod to compare?

Other than the longer boom and the trimmed canopy and tail fin, it is stock. I'm waiting for a MH swash and maybe thinking about going brushless. Maybe.

My brushless dual tail RKH and MH little bird.

Paper canopy (props to TutelarRC and b-master for those!)

Love it!

Here's mine:

Rakon head, frame, tail-boom support, fin, and TDR-style skids. And an MIA Edge canopy to top it off. Soon to be brushless!

What did you use to paint the blades? I tried it and added WAY too much weight. I am sure I could have done a better job but I'm curious what you did and how much weight it added.

Did a sand job to break the gloss on the blades and a couple of light coats of krylon plastic paint.
You can still see the line work under the paint
Probably a coat or 2 too many..but it flies good, may redo them again once they begin to chip.

So did you weigh them?
