Diff between 4" DX3 XL versus 4" Mania? These look very similar to me, fin profile, NC profile... I guess the DX3 XL is a couple inches longer and that's about all?

I just bought the Mania and it looks like it is going to be a fun build!

Thanks!

Mania has 5:1 nose cone, DX3 has 6:1, which will also explain the extra length. Without downloading both files and looking at fin profiles I would say the Mania fins are definitely larger and/or maybe angle on trailing edge is different.

Much thanks!

The fins are pretty hefty, for sure. Never realized there was a 6:1 NC. I was stuck in a rut with thinking 5:1 was it...

P.S. I have been called a sufficiently talented fool before. :) So, look out!
