If you build it stock, it should be fine. Lots of fin area back
there. The forward fins cancel some of it out, but it flies just
fine. I assume you're talking about the original, and not the Super
Vega. I also assume, from the sound of it, you're building the later
version, with flat caps on the fin pods. The earlier version used
balsa cones on the pods, and was probably, if anything, more tail
heavy. Again, that version was a great flier.
