no thats a regular 450 canopy, it won't work on your pro, you need one that says 450 pro. You could always fly without a canopy.

Take a look at this recent forum below, I think a couple guys have modded their canopy to accept the bigger battery. Also it is a discussion about switching to 6s, might interest you as well.

In my opinion you should just stay with 3s. Just get a 2200mah batt instead of that 1300mah you have. What kind of flight times do you get with that batt? 3minutes?

Here's the link:

I have been running stretched 6s helis for years and recently 12s versions with dual 1300s. HK sells two battery sizes in the 1300ma range. One is longer and thinner and should work. The other is the traditional "fat" and short 1300, of which I can fit two of under my canopy's. You will have to relocate your canopy pin holes or canopy pins to do what I am doing. But the longer battery usually fits in the pro with few mods. And lots of guys are doing it. Once you fly with a proper 6s setup there is no going back. The performance changes are seat of the pants miles better with cooler electronics to boot. Not to mention I have packs with well over 350 cycles and a few with more still performing well.

I have cut down my frames to make it easy for the lipos to fit for 4s. now that I have the gens ace 1200 mah they are the same size as the 2200 mah 3s so they would fit under the stock 450 pro canopy with out the mod. I don't see why can't use the stock 450 pro v2 canopy. it should fit fine. maybe I can load some pics soon.

if you are going with the 4s setup I was using the scorpion 2221-10 motor with a 12t on the stock pro gears. the motor is around 3000kv I think hobbyking would carry a motor that can run 4s keep it around 3000kv. if you go 6s try 1700kv
Im using the 450mx 1700kv align motor in the video and loving it, I hope this helps. if you have any more question pm me anytime

If your Prov2 has the BL450MX 1700kv, you don't need the scorpion as the 450MX 1700kv is rated up to 6s. The HK-2221-1630 is a better 6s motor. Remember to use the correct pinion and an esc that can handle 6s. One of the best, small and light esc to use is the YGE60A esc.

As for battery, the nano-tech 1300mAh batteries, running in series, are good batteries and they fit perfectly under the stock Prov2 canopy. If you don't want to use "y" cable to run the batteries in series or to connect the batteries, permanently to run in series, the current 6s battery from Pulse also can be used.

With a 6S setup, the current draw is approximately halved, so there is more headroom for the motor. This translates to less bogging of the motor. Because of the lower current draw, the electronics are also cooler. 40A vs 20A is rather considerable.
