Default Re: baggage pods

Well, I'm re-locating the landing lights on my plane to the end of the strakes. Not wanting more complexity to a dropping compartment light and don't want to go back and punch holes in the bottom of my finished fuse, I decided this was a good alternative. I started digging out foam then remembered the baggage pods.

Not getting too deep in another project I ignored the details and assumed they were mounted on the strake ends - wrong! They're mounted on the wing root after reading this thread and going to other's websites.

The beginning of this thread Dust tells about a possible better placement after watching a video on the aerodynics of the AR5. So I looked it up but I'm not finding any information and I watched the whole video!
