All of my conjectures focused on the case where n > 3.
However the case n = 3, while fairly elementary, is not as trivial as you seem to think.
It seems you're ignoring the specification that the rational triangle is required to have circumradius 1.

There are _no_ rational triangles with circumradius 1 having an angle of 60 or 120 degrees.
