Default RE: Scratch Designed/Built Sailplane Fuselage

A guy over at RC Groups pointed out that my pod fuselage may cause ground handling issues. Specifically he felt the design would be prone to skipping during landing. Once the pod contacts the ground the tail will hit next raising the nose alarmingly & back up she goes, hop hop hop. So to fix the issue I'm thinking a small tail-skid should keep the AOAfrom getting out of hand during landing. It looks kinda cool too...
