looks great gery, are they full length elevons or are you splitting them so you can have flaps as well?

I built mine as per Vern Hunt's plans

http://www.glide.net.au/flyingwing/vern/index.htm

Unfortunately I sold it when I moved house last year. I'd like to build another slightly different design, to a similar size again using balsa.
