Curious what your top speed is without the gear fairings. Mine was around 155K all out and could get almost to 2600 RPM. I just finished installing the gear fairings but haven't yet flown to see how much the gear drag was slowing me down.
According to the build manual, the drag of a non-A robs 12-15 MPH, which equates to 27 HP.
