Default RV-4 with wing pod

Going through old Oshkosh pictures today. Wondering if anything ever became of this.

Default Cargo pod

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

Thumbs up 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...)

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