I feel your pain. I find that dark under wing and wide contrasting stripes work well. When I was a newbie I used to add them to one wing only so I knew from a distance whether the model was moving away or coming towards me.
Here's a few suggestions for you. Aimed at glider guiders but what works well at a distance will hole true at closer range. Interesting at how certain colours are perceived as shades of grey (but not 50) at a when further away
Another trick is to add some reflective silver tape to the wing tips and top of fin as these will glint in the sun.

Bummer on the crash but at least you was able to fly it a little. Florescent orange and black work the best for me for visibility.
