Why do nerf darts fly straight?

Did you add an extended barrel to your Nerf gun? Install higher compression springs? Modify plastic internals and lubricate plastic pistons? Over-volt the electric motor for faster firing rates? This section is for you!

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.
