Thanks and I have to say that layout worked well for telling the bottom versus top even on a bright sunny morning.

Same as my Juka on the previous page!!

It's a cheap and easy way to get a SHARP looking color scheme that will live the life of the airplane. Plus it's not as messy as paint (well, sometimes ).

I was thinking of doing Quiques Yak 54 scheme:

Wound up painting most of the airplane, and using packing tape on the bottom for the stripes. I think it turned out looking great if I do say so myself

Thanks! The entire landing gear setup only weighs about 3.5oz. Shouldn't affect how it flies too much..

Got a quick flight in the front yard with my 48'' juka, thanks to the wife for doing the camera work for me.

It has a DP2820-1000 swinging an APC 12x8E with a castle thunderbird 36 and a 3S 2200 30c pack from hobby people. Servos are HS65HB with an HS65MG on the rudder, Minima 6E receiver. Weighs about 31oz flying. I get about 6 minutes of hard flying out of it. Flies a bit heavy with all the paint and color tape with the landing gear, more like a fully air foiled airplane.
