Default Fiberglass canopy

Anyone know of a source for a sturdy fiberglass canopy that will fit?

I had this one until it got smashed. Was strong, decent fit and cheap, but they no longer carry it:

I have a couple of the stock canopies new, but they crack like an eggshell if you look at them wrong so I just use them for display.

Thanks!

LOL Thanks. I just ordered one not even 10 minutes ago, and I found it on eBay form Horizon Hobby just like you said for $34.99 w/ free shipping.

This heli has sentimental value to me. It was my first "big" heli. I still fly it quite a bit, but I wanted a nice (uncrashed) canopy to put on it when I'm NOT flying it.
