The center of yaw stability [v/fins] seems very close to the center of balance. And with that amount of nose ahead of the center of balance, beware of a tendency to flat spin if turbulence or handling put too much yaw in for the fins to handle. If it is a problem, you can angle the fins backward out even beyond the trailing edge.

Been there, done that, and got the T-shirt Tex.
