Not to disagree, but most everything in front of the props should be pretty much laminar unless it is a huge profile change.

I can see some turbulence at intersections and with the tip setup from vortice flow, and I wonder about the drive units operating in disturbed air but that will just reduce available thrust and not decrease drag.

I defer to your knowledge base as mine is mostly deduced from my aviation failures.
