Turnigy High-End Fiberglass Canopy for Trex 550E
Constructed from high quality fiberglass with a vibrant gloss paint scheme.
Well what to say ?
First this canopy DOESN'T fit on any align T-REX 550 with 600 tail boom.
The 600 boom asks to put the battery very in front of the heli because of the center of gravity.
And the nose of this canopy is to narrow, it fits well without battery but doesn't mount once the battery is in place.
Second, is there any quality control at Hobbyking ?
My canopy came with a 8 inch long deep scratch on the left side, see this photo :
Other deep scratches here :
And some little scratches here :
This is out of the box.
So if you need a "sacrificial" canopy when testing new moves with a T-REX 550 (with 550 sized boom) why not, but otherwise you may be disappointed.
Still looking for the "high end" in this canopy...Didn't come with holes for the canopy clip so I had to drill myself. One side bulges slightly around the maingear compared to the other when installed on the helicopter but it's a $16 canopy so I'm not complaining. Paint and finish are good quality.For you information guys this canopy weight: 88 grams.
Please give some credit if it was helpful :)Hey Guys, Arrived nicely boxed, no damage at all. The canopy is very High quality, but very flexible. Probably can handle some crashes, lol. Looks better then in the picture!OMG! I knew it was a gamble shipping to USA. Box was punctured but no damage to item. Lucky me. This thing is beautiful! Ship it Register mail to USA is your best bet for safe one-piece arrival. But no gaurantee.I just get this canopy today. When I saw it packed in the box I was sure that it will be some cracks, but it was fine and what a finish. For that price it deserve 6 stars.
