Something light (white/yellow) on top, something dark (black, purple) underneath. This accentuates the natural tendancy for the top to be lit and the bottom to be in shadow.

Red works great for either top or bottom.

Note also that different colors will blend into cloud cover than will blend with blue sky, so it's good to have a contrast pattern of some sort either way. A black wing underside with white servo covers is easier to see than just plain black- but the pattern needs to be very low resolution (GIANT spots, or WIDE stripes) to prevent it from blending into a single muddy color when it's a long way off.
