As above, they fly well considering they dont have fletchings or spin?

Section density. Head heavy with light tail. Will fly straighter if it had fins. I had plans to print a rifled barrel for a nerf gun and test out but haven't got the time.

Also a high-drag tail.

Relevant discussion and testing.
