I would have never believed it myself, but this paint job actually made me more precise in all of my maneuvers. There was never a milisecond of disorientation!

YES! I agree, especially in the early stages of learning to fly, a high vis. paint scheme really helps. I still like my florecent orange, yellow and green canopies.Ignorance is curable, stupidity is for life.

Thanks for the comments. Here is another one I just did, but I doubt it will stand out like the first one. What do you think?

My assumptions were correct, the blue on top is tough to follow with a blue sky, but it was surprizingly easier to do piro-flips. Im still trying to figure this one out.

Those canopies look great! I think yellow is one of the best colours you can use, it really stands out.

Thanks. I agree yellow is the most visible color in all conditions. And might I add, Im red/greed color deficient. I wonder if it looks different to me, or if its so bright a color, it makes no difference.

I guess you could try and see? But I don't think red and green go well together
