Maybe try a theme from a movie like Pirates of the Carribean or NFL team.

My 55" Juka is going to have Seattle Seahawk theme.

I say something involving Navy Blue and White

I had a 55 inch Yak 3 years ago. I remember the hovering and rollers being super easy, in fact I learned rollers on that Yak 55.

I wanted a dramatic night flyer and figure the 55" can carry a couple hundred LEDs easy.

Quick update on that Sonic Electric motor, Mark_q was having some magnet issues with his and mine is getting loud and ugly sounding although it continues to pull pretty well.

Yes, sorry to report the SonicElectric on my 40" Juka started getting louder and louder then a tick, tick sound began as I was flying at Lake Chelan today. It didn't stop working, it still pulled like mad, but the noise! I took it apart and found the bell was loose on the shaft as if the bell hole was too large. I lock-tighted it and tightened the single set screw but I don't think it will last much longer.

Also, there was distracting scenery (and, no, I didn't photoshop the plane in...)

What we're missing is the following shots of the plane slowly nosing over into the lake when the pilot lost track of it
