I have had a few strange questions and requests lately about some of the stuff on this page, so I am making things a little easier to get to and to understand.
I do not sell wings. (But I have been known to buy them!)
If you want to buy a flying wing, have a look on the
Commercially Available Wings Page

If you need any flying wing airfoil coordinates, have a look at the

If any plans for the featured wings are available, they are accessed by clicking on the plan Icon at the base of the page about that wing. All relevant details and dimensions are on the plans, unless noted otherwise.
I don't mind answering questions, but please read the page concerned first to see if the answer isn't there. Try the other pages too. In fact, read all the pages. If you still can't find the answer then ask me and I will update the info to make it all clear. (hopefully)
Construction tips for all sorts of things are available on the Construction Tips Page
A FANTASTIC page on Flying Wing design exists on Martin Hepperles' site
The basic Panknin Wing Twist Program is available in an Excel file and also in basic form from BSquared's Site Ok, now where were we? Oh yes....
Flying wings seem to becoming a little more popular these days and I am hoping to encourage this by making available to the more adventuresome among us, some details on a few successful models to encourage more development and spread the word on just how well some of these deceptively simple models perform.

Hopefully there will be enough details for construction of these models or at least enough details for the more experienced builder to come up with a serviceable airframe. If you have any questions, just let me know! Keep in mind the requirement for torsional ridgidity. Especially in the bigger, faster models.
Yes, you possibly can build some of the models using different techniques, like balsa coverings instead of carbon/glass, but ask yourself why they were built that way in the first place.....
The handlaunch models may get away with traditional construction as their speeds are relatively slow and their dimensions are small. The composite models are normally constructed with at least one layer of glass or carbon at 45 degrees to counter torsion, and a spar system to handle bending loads. If you haven't visited it already, the construction tips page contains some construction items.

Most of these models have been displayed here with the assistance of the designers where possible and if you decide to construct any of these please let me know so I can inform them of your progress.

If you have any questions about construction details that I have left out or any general questions, please email me and I will try to answer your questions and update this site.
