Not for cosmetic reasons but for potential gain in performance. The thought being that a LE which is wrinkled in the way this is not providing lift and is most likely causing addition parasitic drag to boot- at least in theory. What I don't know is how the wing shape is in flight- under load and when providing lift. It could be that it sorts itself out although I kinda doubt it. Once I figure out how to measure polar curves using my 6030 and have the opportunity to do so (smooth air etc) I plan on collect some emperical data with and without noodles.
