Default Help with canopy for Hawk sport...Please help!

I just bought a used Century Hawk Sport 30 but it doesn't come with a canopy. Im trying to find a canopy online but haven't seen one listed for the Hawk, so my question is what other heli canopy will fit the hawk sport 30?

That looks like the 30 sized Century FunKey fuselage - If it is, you will be able to get it to fit, but you may need the lower metal frame set from the current Hawk Pro to do so.

Most of their fuselages require the Hawk Pro metal lower frames, as they are not as deep (tall) as the older GRP Sport frames. But the H-500 is a relatively deep fuslage so maybe it would fit with some minor modification.

The Hawk Pro and the scale 30 mechanics from Century, use the same alluninum lower frame and servo frame sets. These are different from the Hawk Sport or earlier versions of the Hawk.

You can mount them on any of the earlier versions for easy installation into scale fuselages or simply for a better location of the fuel tank.

Just order these parts:

There is a big diffeerence in the 3D capabilities of the Hawk Pro relative ot its predecessors. But its' predecessors had ideal sport and scale flight characteristics.
