Who decided to call deltas wings? Kinda muddies the waters a bit. Oh, well. It's a done deal and we can't drink the water any more.

A delta is one of the four common planforms of "flying wings". The other three are; chevron, plank and forward swept.

Rockin Robbins is one of them thar "Flying Wing Purists". Nothing else matters to him except that is be all wing. No fuselage, no verticals.

The rest of us DON"T CARE! If it ain't got a horizontal tail, it's a flying wing to me.

Several books I have on the subject of Flying Wings, have pictures of tailed deltas in them. So it would seem in the full size world, deltas are considered wings.

If its a german import then these are probably "JustWings" from Schuster Modellbauservice: Here is the Link to the Wing family selection. Sorry only in german.
(No chance for google translate because text is part of the picture...
