You guys buying plexus, you must be rich fuckers!
Except make sure that the oily film is wiped off good for forward visibility. If not, then Pledge can really create a glare problem when landing at night in the rain with the approach / runway lights turned up! Don't seem to get that with Plexus. Good for day flying though, but watch for bees after the canopy is closed!
