On the Radian, the bottom of the wing is Krylon "Red Glowing Orange Fluorescent," other than the wing tips (winglets) are covered on the bottom with chrome MonoKote, which will glint in the sun. The top of the wings have an 8" Red Glowing Orange Flurorescent strip just before the wing tip. The difference in coverage between the top and bottom is more than enough to tell the orientation. When I see the long red/orange strip on the bottom, I know what's going on. I can just see the Red/Orange fluro so well, I just changed it's scheme between top and bottom for the wing to help with orientation. The horizontal stab is all Red/Orange fluro, top and bottom. By the way, I stripped off all the standard Radian decals. I didn't really care for the basic scheme.
All I can say is that it works for me.
