Make fins from sandwiched 1/4 or 1/2 foam and carbon fiber. That will take the landing & the heat.
Mega fins are: second set for new fincan [which are surface mounted] center is carbon then 1/4 foam on each side, then carbon on exterior. For the P-motor.
First set [pictures] are 1/2in foam with 3 layers of 5oz carbon on each side.
They don't flex and have a couple flights on them. One landing on concrete hard Playa.
Nothing fancy [not bagged or vacuumed] just regular layup.
Will be light weight and keep the CG where it belongs
