Truthfully, I haven't really noticed it. This one uses a different pylon shape that I hacked from a simple fin, so it wasn't an issue. I'll try some samples and see what I get.

Sometimes the ringtail works well, but more often they really pull the performance down by about half. There must be a lot of drag being figured into the ring...
