^^ Yes, "The study of a grass blade".

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I agree with every thing said above. I also like white skids. My canopy is red on top and white on bottom with white skids. This really helps particularly when the heli is a ways out. I usually fly a couple of mistakes high to give myself ample time to get out of trouble.

I don't care much for the Blue canopy as for some reason I can't see how far the heli has rolled and/or angled to myself. With the shark face I guess I can see how many teeth are showing

High Voltage just works better

I like all your ideas, I think I will try the two toned canopy. Need a new one anyway the last one ended up in a tree when I lost my orientation. Funny thing, Helis are not treeproof, huh, who new. That one was not cheap.

One thing I did too was to have one skid a different contrasting color to the other. I don't really look at the skids any more, but back then the skids would just blend together and help to create the illusion that the helicopter was going away when it was in fact coming towards. Knowing that the right skid was yellow and the left skid was black helped eliminate the illusion. Again, since I fly farther up and away now, the visual cues don't work well so I rely on what I was intending to do. I have only crashed my 450 once this entire year, the Rappy remains crash free for almost a year and a half, and I am trying more stuff now.
