Helifreak user Ian99 made available a beautifully rendition of the Mikado Logo XXtreme. His interpretation into a paper model looks great. I wanted a different color scheme and wanted to be able to use my Silhouette SD machine to cut it out for me…so I vectorized it.
Here’s the first draft of the red/white version.
Ian99 also details his tips on how to put together a good looking paper canopy. Have a look here: http://www.helifreak.com/showpost.php?p=4963926&postcount=199
I have some of my own thoughts here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1696633
Using Staples brochure paper, the prints are respectable and the weight savings is noticeable over the photo paper version. Finish canopy comes in at 1.55g. About the weight of the stock Nano CPX canopy. :)
