You could probably build one from a standard slope wing

I posted some pics of this model a year ago or so, but there has recently been a larger dump at a site which it is apparently illegal to even mention on RCG (created by Mr Zuck) so I couldn't post a link. Here's some pics of NASA's BWB (Blended Wing Body) transport concept.

My friend, Vladimir, built this Horten. It was sorted out a few weekends ago under the capable thumbs of MikeF and flies very well. Landing is a lot slower, now, but it is still a bit tricky because when the retractable nose wheel touches the flight path 'goes positive' causing it to pitch up and off the runway. It could use some kind of rear skid that extends down more to cause the model to 'plant' upon touchdown. Vladimir is working on it!

404 not found... that's strange because I copied the post from this thread! Here are some pictures I took at the Winamac aerotow event.
