Correct

Flying wing concept is superb aerodynamically, but suffers from directional control (Putilov was abandoned for that reason ...and of course, their building materials sucked ).
For that reason I'm taking the concept from marvellete for the "tail" section which should mitigate some issues, gives me better yaw and pitch control. Of course it raises secondary issue, drag.

I agree, (there is always a but) but having a power source on board which spews enough energy to run all modules without the hassle of recharging (wait time) or shutting down systems when you need them for the sake of engine power and of course ease-of-use (just fill it up) is plus.

So far I'm up to 150W. It adds up quickly :/
