Belly Pod

Custom Belly pod. Really cleans up the belly of the plane, and the airflow lines seem to be really smooth, may not be much if any of an airspeed hit...

HI Taylor,   thanks for the reply.  i understand how the rest of it can take up time!  eitherway it is looks well put together and i am for sure gonna try it..  and will look into a few inches deeper..  i am going to put larger tyres, so may have more ground clearance.   thanks for the info!   cheers   josh

Unfortunately we don't really have any formal plans, Just eyeballed it and built the thing!  If I had it to do over again I might have made it an inch or so deeper.  I've been talking to my dad about making up some drawings and maybe even a partial kit with the formed metal pre made, but right now we're busy working on the firewall forward section and just don't have the time.  I'll keep in touch though.  Taylor
