Why planks for EPP DS?

I need some convincing as to why plank-style flying wings (25% chord line is straight) are better suited to high DS speeds compared to swept flying wings (25% chord line is swept back towards wingtips).... I'm more interested in aerodynamic reasoning rather than just comparing models because obviously all the fastest, most popular, EPP DS models are currently planks (or close to it) and most of the swept wings are designed for combat.


Kye.
