Default 3 Planes in a delta formation

I have three planes I have glued together in a delta formation. All three are flying wings. ALl 3 have the same radio gear; elevons and throttle. All 3 are elctric. Does anyone have any thoughts on how i should set them up? Right now, I am thinking of the forward, single plane having only a motor, and the two aft ones having the elevons. But i am wondering if this would work, or should I just have the forward plane with elevons and the two aft ones with just throttles?
Anyone with experience in this?
I like unique, and really would like for this to work.
Thanks in Advance

You think the WRIGHT BROTHERS asked similar questions on forums wheather their idea that no one else had tried would work? There is only one way to find out.

But my oppinion is the first idea stated. But don't take it from me. I can't keep my plane in one peice.

yah the first one should work, how are they conected, because if the bonds are not strong enough they will all crash. you should wire it just like a regular plane dont have more gear than you need just us eztensions if you need to. extra stuff will only be more things to go wrong.
