I was flying yesterday and it was a dark cloudy day. I had trouble seeing the stock canopy. Are there any good canopies with brighter colors available. Yellow with some trim would be good for cloudy days.

Any ideas?

I can't point to any specific canopy companies specificaly but I have found the bright yellow with bright orange combo to be the best of anything for visibility in all conditions and backgrounds. I painted mine myself(see attached pics) with Ace brand flourescent marking paint and highlighted with an orange bottom. Just sanded canopy, used white Krylon fusion for primer, then all yellow and highlighted bottom with the orange for contrast. Completed by adding a few coats of automotive laquer based clear coat. Paint seems to hold well until the canopy gets smacked real good and then it might start chipping. The yellow just stands out nice in all conditions bright or cloudy and does really good as well against trees as a background when down low. Hope that gives you one idea. :-)
