I painted my own canopy and I am working on a new canopy to get my spray skills a bit better.
BTW BOB, great inverted picture! I will have to try that pose, ( when I am more skilled inverted hovering!!)

Here is my quick paint job, nothing fancy, but is really bright and visible. I am waiting for parts so I can mount it to something!

Looks like mine! Same RX pack, RX, etc... LOOKS GOOD

Also here is a tip... Do yourself a favor and put some foam pad between the RX and the tray. That frame is so rigid the motor vibration really gets to the RX and I had a failure.

I found the problem on the bench BUT later I had a 8717 failure and had a small crash. Waiting for parts to get here.

This should take care of that issue..1/2" piece of foam rubber under the RX. Nicely strapped down as well..

Very nice... don't forget to properly attach your governor sensor cable as it might be in contact with your muffler...

The sensor wire is mounted securely to the frame..It looks closer in the pics..I actually have some rubber sleeve covering I am going to put over it as well..
