    I say let your nose cone sing. It has a wonderful voice. Don't try to de-sing it.

    Look at Madcow or Wildman kits and that should give you a good start. Also what tune did the original sing?

    I'd say mess around in OpenRocket or whatever your simulator is and do whatever catches your eye and gets the best result. Also, the body design and its size is what matters most to the altitude. Just use your simulation program to mess around with the best design is my suggestion.
