Cargo pod
 
Search for Mike Arnold videos on Youtube and you will see how he designed and made that pod. He was extemely talented.

Mike seemed to be ultra dedicated to the craft! Super cool info!
The Arnold Company knew glass!

Wing Pod on a -4
 
I just look at the video, very interesting but a lot of work...

Anyone has an idea of the drag factor ( Speed penality , loading consideration.etc...)

Thanks

Neat! Are these still being made anywhere?

Troy Grover would know. He had the molds.

Looks very nicely built. But why not just modify your wingtips to through some stuff in there? Looks about the same size.
