airbrakes or crow brakes for 2m powered thermal wing
I've designed a 2m flying wing, for thermalling and not so much speed.
The places I fly from I struggle to get a standard 2m sailplane down. are airbrakes or crow braking (flaps and ailerons opposed) better to get this thing down where i want it?

robbie- yep, crow brakes (inner flaps down and elevons up) will allow you to drop it comfortably into a tight spot at a high decent angle under full control. use the outer 60% of each wing half as the elevons and what ever is left over on the inside as flaps.
