Since the instructions on page 38iS/U-23 and 38iS/U-25 donít mention a joggle, I wonder if itís worth the effort to make one. I doubt if the inspection panel causes much drag.

silly me.. i didn't even think to look to see if there was an Avery tool for that.

I'm sure any drag savings would be negligible and undetectable.. its more about having a normal looking rv-12iS .. rather than one of those "early model" rv-12iS's

Let us know how it turns out if you decide to make a joggle. I agree it would look better.

Thumbs up joggle
