pull up -- PULL UP!!!
Yeah, mine is the stock WM kit. I bought a spare for the eventual day of replacement, but it remains in the box. Like you, fly it every week.

Having tried a few wing and body variations, I have found all fly well..
For me there are only minor differences..
I am presently building another two for flying buddies..
These are at 23" span from 8mmEPP.. V2 wing ..
PDF files are below, they have added squares to make plan alignment easier

edit note...when gluing the fuz to the wing the rudder hinge line should have been the reference point.
It should be fitted, lined up with the rear of the elevons.. then the motor block is recessed slightly into the wing.

On the ones below , the fuz parts were aligned from the front of the wing resulting in the fin and rudder being brought an inch or so forward ...
This is yet another variation.. no problem , its easy enough to add in a strip to the fin and move the rudder back a bit , but I doubt it will make a difference as the rudder is well powerful , and so far my different fuz shapes have not made a noticeable difference to the way any of them fly....

My older V3 was looking tatty.. but still going strong.... so I gave it some more paint and then redid the pdf files...
the pdf's are for a 23.5" span..

On the gartt 2204-1800 it hovers a treat using a 2s lipo and 8x4.3 gws sf type prop.. It flies lovely..

Using Adobe and scaling down by a couple of inches makes for a lighter model and gives a sharper performance on the same power setup..

We have found some new white foam sheets ... available from B&Q ... to use instead of depron..
800x600mm.... in 3, 6, 9mm ...first impressions are very good, it feels stronger/denser/harder than the green sheets from the same manufacturer..
here is the 6mm...8 sheets for 13.74 and the quality looks pretty good.
You can find this material in the building section, with thermal insulation...
The 9mm sheets are also looking good for your bigger models..
The green 5mm sheets are in the flooring section

Yet another variation.... A Qv4......This one a mashup.. using a slightly fat quasar body shape with a flattened pp1 wing at 21"...
gives an identical wing area to my V3 at 23" version..
This one has is less of a pointy delta and is yet again a lovely indoor flyer..

Best COG at the rear 25% position marked

made from the B&Q 6mm foam it was hit on its second flight so already its needing some fixing.. and more strengthening...
I will fully cover this one with very thin laminating film to make it last ..but it will definitely get a remake sometime in EPP

note v2 and v3 quasars are flown along with the Qv4.. all the deltas are very much liked for our sessions.. and there are a few more in progress.

Using a full covering of thin lamination film was a mistake after the model was built..you must cover the wing early in the build so as to get a flat wing... doing it when built all I got was a badly warped wing...I was not able to get it fixed..

The model has been scrapped and I have already made a new one in EPP..
The build was done in a few hours and is now ready for the gear...
