The stabilizers on Kairi, code named "Valkyrie", Respawn Entertainment's newest legend in Apex Legends and daughter to legendary Northstar Titan Pilot Imahara code named "Viper", are in fact pointing in the wrong direction to maintain aerodynamical fidelity. When she uses her ultimate or exits the dropship when a match starts, this would cause extreme profile drag, which is a combination of both friction drag and pressure drag. If you look at any NASA or SpaceX rocket or shuttle, the stabilizers are aerodynamically correct. In comparison, Valkyrie's thigh stabilizers would be detrimental to her aero ability, and, as an aspiring titan pilot herself, she would have knowledge of this. Continuity-wise this fails to make sense.

According to an article written by the great Tim Van Milligan that determines the best fin shape for competition model rockets, Tim goes on to explain how the preferred fin shape is found by using a method named The Reynolds Number. The Reynolds Number is often used to determine the Coefficient of Lift of the fin at various angle of attacks (AOA). The higher the Reynolds Number, the higher the fins Coefficient of Lift. Therefore, it will be more efficient at creating a restoring force to correct the path of a rocket.

With this we can determine that unless Valkyrie enters a free fall legs first after using her ultimate or jumping from the dropship, which would be lethal on impact or without booster protection, her aerodynamical ability and maximum dive velocity is limited. By signing this petition you agree that Respawn Entertainment should fix the direction of Valkyrie's leg stabilizers. Thank you.
