Why are the new Trojans cloud grey?

My buddy has one of the newer PZ Trojans. They used to be white but now they are grey...he was flying it on a cloudy day and it literally disappeared against the clouds. After that he took it straight home and painted it up...I think that PZ is turning out some great planes but this colour makes me wonder.. Anyone else having similar troubles?

Re: Why are the new Trojans cloud grey?

I always liked the red and white one the best. I think it comes down to marketing. Probably the sales were slowing up on the old version and they change the colour and presto we have a new plane that everyone wants again. Less cost involved then ramping up for a totally new plane.

You will notice the ultra-micro T28 is red and white. Hope it doesn't change colour.


If you want awesome, you have to scratch build it!

I think you can still get the original colours on the Trojan. It's just a different scheme.

White is definitely better for visibility, that's for sure. My Corsair disappeared on me a couple times, too. Dark clouds or even a clear day with bad sun direction made seeing the Corsair a problem.

I firmly believe the new Horizon graphic designer is either color blind or has just bad taste all around, their new plane schemes are just but ugly.
