Overall it looks very cool.

How is the sound?

Any flapping or cascading ripples?

I like it.
Thanks Kach22i! There is no flapping or ripples that I am observing. My fabrication and sewing wasn't perfect, so when it is at rest, it is a little loose. But, once I get moving through the air it seems fill in pretty well. On my next version I hope to use a thicker material that fits tighter around the frame. I am hearing no sound from the aerocap. In fact, my truck seem queiter when I have the cap on. Here are more pictures:
