The oil drain hole is dead center of the passenger aero panel, and there's about an inch of space between the valve and the panel, so it's not likely to take any impacts. Also, the valve is locking, so there won't be any accidental openings.

Reaching the valve to open it with the aero panel on might be tricky, but at least you wouldn't need to take the panel off completely, just two bolts at the end. The hose can be run and zip tied to a more convenient location.
