Raptor 2.0 A real Dyna-Soar...... 2M bagged DS'er/Sloper build Log

Hi im currently in the Process of Designing a 2m DS Ship in Cad For light to medium DS and Some Slope ...called the Raptor 2.0
You may notice the Trileronss on the Ailerons to Reduce Tip Vortices...
it Uses A Thinned RG-14 Foil and i am aiming for an AUW of 1.5-3Kg...RTF With Full ballast and 800g no ballast
i Plan to Use a T-tail ... Though i am unsure on Vert Stab size?
any Help?
Let me know your Thoughts?

No need for 1K carbon on a DS ship. I'd go straight to 3K. Much, much, much, much cheaper.
