It seems to me that if you paint the window black, the top half a color and the bottom half a different color and the vertical tail fin the same it is the best for visibility while doing 3D. Agree, disagree?

What color do you find to be very visible? I think yellow, pink, red, green and blue in neon (bright) will work the best.

Agree you are pretty right on there. Do a nice fade on the side of the canopy between colors and it will look great. Fins I use CF black.

So far for me I can see red and orange the best. White and blue seem to be the worst for my tired eyes.

Hi,

look at my gallery, the Milli was a 2min paintjob and it really helps. Especially when it's cloudy and with the sunglasses on, this gives you lots of contrast against the gray sky. It's neon paint out of a spraycan...

neon yellow and green might be a nice combination, I'll have to try that out.

Don't forget the fins! Carbon ones are nice but much harder to see.
