Default Canopies from Blade... Good quality

I dare say they are buying Fusuno - SURE looks like them...

However this happened to me today.. SOOOO I bought this assuming this color was accurate (I like the bright yellow and green)... Both sites showed the same colors soo

Yeah... -- I actually thought it was more yellow -- the pictures on the blade and HH site are not exactly accurate obviously.

They are great canopies BUT beware the color may not be exactly what you think it is. (I didn't) but will keep it. It still looks cool.


But instead got this:

Those are very different, even the lines coming from the Blade logo are not the same, hope you alerted HH to the issue. I'm wondering if they changed the final design after the first pic was taken. They both look good, but I like them bright and loud for visibility, I would have to send that one back, good that you like it though.

Sorry about the mixup, we are fixing the photos on Horizonhobby.com now. But the canopy you received is the correct color scheme. Also I should add that all of these canopies are masked and painted by hand so there may be some small differences from one canopy to the next.

Sean knows by now I did call, HH is pro and they were professional offered to replace it and did a perfect job about it.

This is why I spend money with them.

People make mistakes, -- it is STILL a cool canopy and I kept it for sure. BUT like I said the colors did not reflect what I THOUGHT they were is all.

They will fix it and that is cool as long as other people know it as well.

By all means after being a IT director for 15 years now at the same firm.. I make tons of mistakes as well. ---

I called, got someone and within 5 mins they offered to replace it. That is bar none as pro as can be to be honest.

Hey, I like the canopy as is. It looks pretty dead on other then the orange on the bottom. I am happy... just be careful about what colors you think you see maybe ask or look them up online who knows.

I still bought a few canopy's ..

I personally think the green/yellow looks a lot better than the green/orange, and would recommend you go that direction. (Can I get some +1's, if you agree?).

+1 I agree.. sadly that is what I was going for. I thought it was those colors based on the photo. I am willing to bet other people that have ordered that thought the same thing.

The orange is not bad though Ill post a pic asap but it is pretty cool looking. Plus it is a *cough* fusuno so it looks nice quality wise.

My 500x looks nice too!

All in all though it was a mistake is all, not life ending. I like the canopy anyway now that it is on. I HOPE TO SEE SOME sort of custom request system one day.

Not sure how they could do that yet but that would be cool. I think they could make a decal no different then myself and put my name on it lol
