John,

Yeah, I've done a number of very unusual futuristic builds, and most of the time I just decided that it "looked" stable! Mostly that has worked. But when I decided to try to model the V-2 in OpenRocket, I was surprised that fins on a tail cone wasn't a possibility l. When I heard of the workarounds required, I'd rather just use your approach -- "This is a heads up flight".

Looks like I'll have several gliders for the SCORE launch on the 15th. My wife reminded me today that we need to go get an easy-up canopy for shade. Looking forward to joining everyone in Pueblo.
