Books on flying wings
I'm looking for good books on flying wings, theory, examples, pros and cons ..
I ve bought "Tailess tale", but was a bit disappointing in fact.
Any good ideas or links ?
Thanks a lot !

'Tailless Aircraft in Theory and Practice'
written by Karl Nickel and Michael Wohlfhart
Translated by Capt. Eric Brown RN (into English)
pub.by Edward Arnold
Good book, lots of detail (500 pages). includes full size and models, modern and old- the lot basically including technical stuff, control systems etc etc.
Having done a quick search for it I'm amazed at the prices posted, way more than I paid for it new. Perhaps you can find it second hand.

For months, I browsed the German forums with Google Translator at my side. It was more than a little frustrating. Being able to read German will open a few more doors for you, not that I will be able offer any useful leads besides the Nurflügel forums in DE.
