120 sr fiberglass canopy fresh out my new mold.. Soon for M120D01 & MCPX

Finally finished my new canopy mold for the 120 sr and got one mounted on my heli. I was going for the outrage look lol

So ill be making a bunch after I get some opinions on my lowrider type design..

Also which micro heli do you guys think needs a canopy make over? Im willing to make a few different molds and canopies on my spare time.

Im thinking the walkera M120D01 needs a mini trex 250 or mini velocity 50 style?

What about blade mcpx with the GUAI X7 style canopy?

Give me some ideas guys??

Later this winter I will do some micro semi scale ones..

One of the things I (think) I don't like about stock canopies is how they tend too much to gain altitude in a wind. IOW, the aerodynamic shape--flat bottom, round top--is sometimes too much lift. I would sure like to try a canopy that would be a more symmetrical shape. Like the difference between a flat-bottom wing and a symmetrical wing. That way, I could fly into wind without it taking the heli straight up.
