Re: Non-Circular Launch Rail?

The rail would have to be exceedingly wide in order to impart any stabilizing moment — and if it was, then any roll motion it’s intended to correct would either damage the rail or jam the launch.

Far better to use separate, widely spaced rails (such as lightweight trusses guiding the wings directly).
