Apologies to the BGA for attributing to them, the suggestion of inserting
non conducting sections in a control rod.

Yes , non conducting complete control rods will help, unless you
have a carbon spar.

That would aid tremendously in avoiding problems with aft CG. Win-win!

The helmet should have no pointy bits that would act as a lightning rod. Metallic tooth fillings not recommended.

This, I think: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eunice_aphroditois

Or, to see it in action, try this:

Sorry if the URL is folded - its quite long: just like the bobbit itself.
I can't tell you how to wear one, but I guess Jim will fix that for you.
