I read that as "go big or go home"One remedy I've contemplated is to use a much longer, more gradual boat tail that is also smaller at the aft end. But making swept pylons will be easier, I think.
I decided to do longer boat tail and nose cone. Cut 7.5cm off the bottom of an 18" tube and used that as the boat tail. Put 1oz of weight in nose cone. Result comes in at 31" long (CG 14" from front) and 120 grams w/ engine but no chute / shock chord (will try to keep those mounted forward to push CG up a bit more).
Think it will fly stable? Swing test was stable...
Can almost guarantee that the ring tail will get some charring... Any flame resistant paint? Other options to protect interior of ring tail?
