No complaint is justified.
Disagree - it distracted from the topic. The lounge is the area for the "light stuff" and unrelated banter, not members' project threads.


About the plastic: I put it on mainly for aesthetics and to make tuft testing easier to record (contrast). It may have made a marginal improvement in aero because it stretched across & leveled out many uneven dips in the cardboard.

Terry: unfortunately, I didn't tuft test the bottom with the wheel fairing in place. It would have been interesting to see, but I only actually made one.
