Default SIG Rascal coloring improvements for visibility

Hi All,

I have finished a good maiden flight of a SIG Rascal (72" WS). So far mine is pretty stock but I converted it to electric. It looks much like the one at this link http://www.espritmodel.com/index.asp...OD&ProdID=5477

Does anybody have any photos of what people may have done to improve the visibility and orientation? eg. addition of a wintip stripe on one side etc? I found that it was pretty easy to lose the orientation because the trim scheme is exactly same top and bottom and the wing is relatively thin (so it disappeared coming head on).

I'd like to see what others have done to know if there is something other than a simple stripe and a broken colored pattern along the (now) white leading edge.

Thanks for any suggestions
Dave

This is my 8 year old Rascal 110. Its on its third covering, and my favorite plane. I love to thermal up there with the buzzards.
