Mine is set up with red on the top of both wings and green on the bottoms. (See photos.) I haven't had any orientation problems. I also like how it looks, but that's just personal. I think a lot of people use the split colors because of familiarity with navigation lights and the many examples of planes posted here, not because they know it will actually make a difference to their own flying. I still would rather know up from down than left from right while in the air, just like I do in the daytime. But I'm glad you've all found schemes that work for you. Thanks for your comments!
