    Objectively what's the best color?

    I'm not sure what color to get, I haven't seen any of them in person but I know I want one. Please chime in if you feel strongly about a certain color objectively.

    Red
    Orange
    Green
    Blue

    Above is the obvious ordering in terms of easiest to see in flight, day or night. My goal is easy to see since I'm a newbie but perhaps I'm missing something about the other colors especially with the Green or Blue. To me the Blue blends with the sky and the Green blends with grass. Red is easy to find after a crash At night Red would be lasers to the eyes LOL. Not sure about Orange. Any advantage to Blue or Green?

    I like how you are asking this question
    I would get the orange one for it would seem like the easiest to spot both in the air or on the ground.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    Yeah, Orange and Green are signature Traxxas colors. When I see a RC in Orange or Green I assume it's a Traxxas... and if the Orange is anything like the Telluride, it's almost flourscent LOL. While Red is Traxxas's corporate color every company can and do make a Red RC.

    Blue is the X factor... for some reason it looks less like a toy in the Alias. Blue looks more 'grown up' and serious.

    IMO, orange is your best bet for this heli... I still can't figure out how or why Traxxas chooses the colors, for example, they abandon the yellow on the 1/10 Summit which was the best color for it; the XO-1, a 100ph car has all dark colors, no white or yellow, and so on... They need some real advice on color choices...

    Thanks everyone for their input!!!

    Ok I ordered an Alias via Ebay and they ship random colors. I wrote message asking for Red, no guarantee I'll get it. Regardless I'll be happy with any color I think they all look cool. Reason for Red is it's easy to see. Fingers crossed!!!
