That's not tip stalling, that's directional instability. Large flat sided nose with a longer moment arm than the vertical tail surfaces. The large nose acts like a fin in front of the CG, pulling the nose of line and fighting the vertical tail.

Make the nose profile smaller or rounder or move the vertical tail farther back.
