Hey all.

I have a Raven 50 with the silver fiberglass reenforced main blades.
the problem that i have is with seeing the rotor disc while flying. Im partialy colorblind and the silver blades against a light blue sky really makes them next to invisible. What could I put on the blades to help with visualization. would monocoat, paint, or something else work. I had a very good friend tell me to just get CF blades but I can't see not using these untill they break.

Any ideas are welcome.
Thanks for looking

I go to my local sign maker and grab his holographic offcuts. I know what he drinks.
I'm just guessing they will work for you, as with 150mm long strips wrapped from trailing edge to trailing edge top and bottom on each blade it looks like a big CD. The rainbow light reflected when flying may help? Make sure you balance after fitting the self adhesive holographics.
