I thought the Guardian has accelerometers as well as gyros. I do not know the sensitivity of the accelerometers but they should detect slideslip. Drift would be a problem with this. So coupled in with a beta fin should fix this. I can only imagine near stall speeds (high Alph) how much drag rudder deflection that would be needed to keep the yaw stable.
This is all speculation because I have not calculated the dynamics of such a system. I do have a 24" W/S full body test bead that will fly with a vertical.
