What is a Nurflurgel?

Please pardon my ignorance, but I would like an explanation of what a Nurflurgel is, and its orgins.

From what I can see on the group page, it appears to be another name for flying wing, or limited tail surfaces...am I correct?

Information for a poor ignorant Kiwi please

It is a German word meaning tailless or 'only wing' to put a literal translation on it. I presume it was used here to differentiate from the flying wing forum in the electric section.

Great, thanks for that. Was beginning to think there was no-one out there prepared to answer the question...
