Silver edge is much harder to see in the air.... there were times it played heck with my eyes and orientation. The red color on the silver scheme is vibrant and really pops on a sunny day though. Sexy looking plane for sure, but if I had it to do over again I probably would buy the red one just because it is so much easier to see in the air.
I prefer the Slick to the Edge, but I have had two different Slicks and probably 700+ flights between them, so that probably factors in. I wound up selling my Edge after about 50 flights. The Edge has a bit more pitch authority I would say, both harrier super well and do everything nicely. The Edge is after all an Edge and they always seem to feel a bit funny to me with large amounts of rudder input. I'm more comfortable on other airplanes and always a bit wary of Edges due to their rudder tendencies.
