Help with Alternate Canopy


Hello Pro's!

I have a Walkera 180/200 series and I'd like a nice custom canopy.

I purchased the Fusuno 250 canopy as seen below, but it doesn't quite fit. You can see I had to cut along the bottom to fit it over the skids, but it still doesn't reach the rear posts.

Anybody out there know of a good fiberglass canopy that will work?

The next photo is a Blade CP Pro 2. They make a fiberglass Blade 400 canopy (photo 4). The last photo is of a Lama 3 canopy.

Will either of the last two fit?

just watching to see what you come up with

I have the Turbo Ace lighted canopy from Wow on my 4f180, simple and easy, but I always like what you end up with!
Personally I think it needs a fuselage rather than a canopy, so that is what I keep looking for...

The red BSR canopy should be somewhere between the two you have pictured. I have both I will try it for fitment.

Cool. Thanks.

I am going to try the black CP3 canopy and the 4F200 canopy. I know the 4F200 works. It does need some slight modification, but it works!

I was wondering if the CT/CPX fuse would work. I may have to order one...

So, I know the 4F200 works. The CP3 canopy fits too. Kinda big, but gives good front weight for some forward drift.

Since the CP3 canopy is big, I think the fuses mentioned above are going to be waaay to big.
