Default RE: flying wings

Hi, I built Bill Evan's Zippty-do-da which was a .40 size model and I loved it. It flew very well, like Bill says, you could put in in a bank and let go of the controls and drink a cup of coffee. I crashed min for some unknown reason, (loss of control) and have never built another although I have though of it many times since I still have the plans. Bill lives in Bishop, CA if he is still around, I talked to him on the phone one time and he was very cordial. He has designed a whole bunch of models which could be categorized as flying wings I guess.
