I painted my tail fin blaze orange, that helped me see the orientation much better. You can paint the tail boom too. And you can buy orange tail rotors. All will help visibility for tail position.

For orientation on whether you're looking at the top or bottom of the disc, an option there too is to paint the tops of the blades one color and the bottoms of the blades another color. Just be sure to 1) scuff the blades up with some 300 grit sandpaper so it actually sticks, 2) double check blade balance after the paint dries
