I'm not really picky about colors so I've never needed to worry too much about picking them. But now I need to and would ask for some help. Which color combo do you think looks best? This will be a UL kite.

I like the top (first panel) best but I'm not a fan of yellow accents.  Man, this is really a personal choice though. 
But I'm curious what the kite is, couldn't figure it out be the panel layout.

It's the Mojo UL version that Ken is currently taking orders for. I was going to buy a much less expensive kite but John Chilese talked me into buying this one and was kind enough to offer to pay the difference. What a stand up guy, right?!

(only that opening sentence is true  Cheesy . I let him off the hook as long as he agrees to fly it the next time I see him).

I too have played with that colorizer way too much. I'm not a fan of white on my sails that much which i why i chose 4 over the first couple.
Dont forget to consider the background when choosing your colors and how it will look backlit.
just my 2cents

I also thought maybe ken was going to split some of the panels on the colorizer Cry

Chilese tricked me into buying a Mojo UL too. Set up the kite, added lines and said come fly this. I placed my order in the next day.  If John keeps this up I"ll need another kite bag.  Smiley

Ken did seperate the panels on the trailing edge, but four panels are linked. Open up more choices but no all.

I'd go with 3, but switch the white trailing edge panel with the upper grey leading edge panel.

I kind of like yellow on kites but I'm just weird.  Wink

This reminds me I need to work on picking some Mojo colors myself.

I think I could talk the guys on the Forum to ordering that Mojo for you Mike.

I'll even chip in some extra money for an applique unicorn.

Where you like the horn of the unicorn placed?  Roll Eyes

Oh dear. This appears to be backfiring rather badly.  Shocked

Please don't think I wouldn't appreciate the gesture but I would be forced to hunt you all down like dogs.  Angry
