How much nose weight would you recommend for the 18mm Corkscrew variety?
It shouldn't need any nose weight.
You've got to find the right length body tube to get the corkscrew.
Go too long with the body tube (or add nose weight) and the rocket will fly more stable,
without corkscrewing.

Excellent! Then I should be ready to roll for next weeks club launch with a 13mm and 18mm version.
