I wish I was there to ask the city person more details about the complaint. Was it simply noise from the high-powered wings? Flying out of the park and over the flight-line? Or the vertical climbs that grabbed someone's attention?

If we're breaking a noise ordinance, then loud e-planes can't fly until this is straightened out. But if it's something else we need to know before wings just go out and start flying. Your wing is not that loud, so he must have latched onto you since it was a wing airfoil he saw flying.

My Unicorn wing is so quiet you can't hear the speed-400 motor from across the field, and its top speed is typical of any speed-400 aircraft except in a dive. So we need some more information.
