    Please tell me why my quadcopter is white?
    Has anyone painted theirs ?
    What's the best colour to track in the sky?

    You got couple options. You can buy a skin for it, which is just a sticker or you can desassembel it and paint the housing. Not that hard.

    according to a color wheel and my old lady who is also an artist and knows all about color theory even confirms that orange is the opposite color of sky blue and the most contrasting. Black also shows up very well.

    I also know when I had a set of prop guards were two were painted safety orange I could see them really well even from far away. Its always make me want to some day do a hydro dipped tiger striped one with orange and black. Or maybe a black and orange flame pattern would show up good and still look great as well.
