I think that the answere you are looking for is this:

Ive read some post that it is believed that as the COP (center of pressure) moves aft due to increasing speed, a Swep flyign wing eventually runs out of elevator.

Ive never seen this happen. Others may disagree.

A plank is also easier to put a good spar into, zagi type planes dont exactly have a reputation for being stiff!

You could put a sonic ( flying wing) together and make it real stout and heavy and you would have a REAL fast ship for DS-ing with.

I think Planks are a better choice because they have much better flyign characteristics IMHO.
