quick question, which colors are best to have active track working best ?

i'm planning on using/testing active track with some smaller objects, so i guess the colors need to be well "stand out"

Contrast is more important, I think. If the object stands out clearly from the background, then it fits.

i actually wanted to track the Mavic Mini
so i was thinking of dressing it up in somethings "high contrast"

as dust-gray most definitely not going to work ;)

That would be incredibly difficult to achieve

I tried that with the Osmo Pocket and my MP Alpine White (Mavic in the air ) ... no chance. As long as you are close it works. A little further away ( 5 m) or bright background  and the Pocket loses the object. Maybe the MP is better than the Pocket ...
Will work better with my Mini

You won't get good results tracking another drone with Activetrack.   It is too small.  Except at the slowest of speeds & mostly straight-line flying, you'd have to be so close to the lead bird that there would be little time for the chase drone to react & keep the leader in frame.  You'll need to do this with a joint Waypoint flight.  Or mount a Skydio Beacon to the lead drone & let a Skydio track the Beacon.

it worked pretty well actually, i put some Bee-color on it
2 black stripes and a yellow one like the example above, but just in a straight line.

and yes speed is not a thing here, this was actually just to test somethings anyway.
