Finally got around to making some fairings to block off the gap under the stab. Used a #6 screw and nutplate to attach to the top fairing and Scotch brand dual lock fastener along the lower edge. Should blend in well once I get some paint on it.

Norm, I'm in hopes that the fairing allows for "extending" elevator authority throughout touchdown and rollout.  I know of a person who did 3D print fairings for his Cruzer strut.  Maybe we can talk him into doing some for a STOL?

Dave, I did something similar on my 750.  Didn't make a difference in the AS indicator reading but cosmetically it looks much better.  I'd like to see someone come up with a fairing to cover the fuselage/strut and wing/strut attach areas.  Wouldn't make an airspeed difference on our airplanes but probably would on the Cruzer.  I'll bet an individual couldn't keep up with the demand!
