I think the biggest reason for Planks vs Wings is simply twist resistance. Graps a wing tip with each hand on a JW and try and twist the model then compare that to a flying wing. You'll see that the wing has MUCH MUCH more twist slop. This is of course is the limitation of the inherently flimsy nature of EPP. What do you think happens when you break through the sheer at high speed and the whole model twists up? You'll immediately flutter and lose control. Infact this is why the JW is the fastest of the EPP stuff.
