Thanks guys. If I've not already done so, I should mention this project is not about building a really nice flying sailplane, actually quite the opposite. I'm going for a comical, almost cartoonish look.

Yeah she's extremely short-coupled by design. You're correct, a longer tail moment would no doubt result in a more stable plane.

Again I'm not all that concerned about performance, the struts while semi-functional are there mainly for looks. They're removable though so if they turn out to be a problem its not a big deal to leave them in the workshop.
