Help!
aftermarket canopy guide

I have the new mini titan e325 fbls sport and want a new canopy. Shopping for a new one seems a little confusing as i can only shop by class and no description of measurments is listed. My canopy is 11.5 long. can any 450 size canopy work on my mini titan. I do not like the look of the V1 canopy. How do i know what one to buy. Can I buy one that works with a trex 450, but what is the difference in size from a pro, v1 and v2. I know that is the type of frame but once again I can not find specific dimentions anywhere.
Thanks, Eric

I'm doubting a trex canopy will fit your titan 325. I might be wrong but I 'd be really surprised if one would fit, as even the different trex models don't have interchangeable canopies. On the other hand I have a fusano canopy thats says it fits a pro, sport, sev2, plus, etc but I don't see how it ever could, they are all way too different, and there's no 325 size trex.

Anyway here are some links of canopies for your heli I found through google:

http://helidirect.com/mini-titan-e32...1_2018_429.hdx

I don't see a difference of which mini titan 325 they're for (sport or whatever else).

Trex type 450 canopies won’t fit – too small!

Mini Titan Pro / V1 / SE / FBL S – these all have the plastic frame with the same mount/post configuration and will accept the V1 type canopy.
Mini Titan V2 / V2 FBL – CF frame. Canopies between the V2 – V1 are not interchangeable.
A couple of more sites…

There is also the option of purchasing a plain V1 canopy and dressing it up with fluorescent decals. These ones certainly would aid in visibility…

For the most part - not a lot of choices in the canopy department, but it’s a great flying Mini. Have fun with your new bird!

I had found all of those already. Just thought that Im was missing something. I saw a post somewhere on the web that the blade x450 would work. Any ideas???

Have you tried googling blade 450x mini titan 325 canopy and look through almost every link? Or maybe refine the search in someway.

I assumed the mini titans was a 325 bird but I googled it and they're calling it a 450 sized. So maybe a 450 canopy will fit. Your stock 325 canopy kind of looks like the shape of a trex sev2.. but I don't know man.

The canopy itself is fine. I just wanted a brighter color. Otherwise the shape of this canopy is fine.

With any luck Fusuno / Canomod will replicate this canopy and offer some high gloss, eye catching, breath taking… ooops, getting carried away with the visions.
Yes, a few more colour schemes/artistic designs would certainly be nice .

I really like the canopy on the new e325 Sport FBL, and hope it can fit on the V1!
