Default Fastest scratch build

Any idea of what the fastest (flying speed) foam scratch build is?
Are there plans and what power system was used?

Cheers
Wayne

Wayne,

Try a search for foam Delta wings. Many folks like those for high-speed applications.

Good Luck!

If you look at various record holders, you will find that flying wings are seldom the chosen configuration (sorry, Kev). Fast aircraft must be stable, and the "normal" configuration is the most successful in nearly every class, from c/l to sailplane to r/c power.
