Here's my Oblique Flying Wing (OFW) demonstrator built for NASA in 1994. It's a scaled down version of an SST concept that is highly efficient over a wide range of cruise Mach Numbers. The model has a 20 ft span and weighs 80 lbs. Power is from 2 x 0.91 ducted fans and there's an on-board computer system for augmented stability in the pitch and yaw axes. The model was flown with oblique sweep varying between 20 and 55 degrees (i.e. like a surfboard flying sideways through the air).
