So, do I even need/want clear fins on my MLAS?

For some reason, I've been chicken about its stability. However, the RSim model I'm basing mine on was made by someone on the NASA team that directed its development and he stated his model agreed closely with wind tunnel measurements. And now that I've seen that one actually flew, I'm beginning to ask "why clear fins?" Maybe, I'll retreat and assess the amount of weight needed to make it stable. I was thinking about using a 38mm G185, which has a lot of lifting power. And with that mount I can always move up! Opinions?
