Mandarin GT, Yeh Baby

Just got back from my local FPV shop after checking out the new mandarin GT with stripes.
Mandarin is a slightly darker blood orange with metalflake.

Spectacular......

Best color I have seen on a FPV ever.

Re: Mandarin GT, Yeh Baby

I was going to go for this mandarin for mine but it looked so dark(colour sample) against a blood orange car and seeing as i hadnt seen it on a car yet i went for a different colour, i hope it doesnt look toooooo good as i'll be spewing.

Re: Mandarin GT, Yeh Baby

Saw Mandarin on a XR6T at my dealers, left me a bit cold, however it was an overcast day, would like to see it in bright sunshine.

Re: Mandarin GT, Yeh Baby

I've seen heaps of them and IMO you aren't missing much. I was a big fan of blood orange when it first came out, but seeing so much of it I got over it. Maybe mandarin might grow on me, but at the moment I don't think too highly of it.

Re: Mandarin GT, Yeh Baby

I don't mind it at all but I would rather see the return of Red Pepper and Onyx Black like on the XA GT's.

Re: Mandarin GT, Yeh Baby

I thought Mandarin would be a repairer's nightmare though.
