There is no difference. Nurflugel means "wing only".

Strictly speaking, a "Nurflugel" doesn't have any vertical surfaces. But who wants to be strict? You can fly a chevron wing without tip fins, ( I have, after a mid-air collision knocked them off), but the tips increase efficiency (minor) and make the wing much easier to see in the air (major).

allright , now its clear thanks
Horten and B2 like are the real nurfugel ,then i understand it now .
If we were strict 50% of the plank here should go to flying wing section haha .

received my kit this morning ,its a warm up for the up2you VC build.

Fuselage is pretty straight forward ,
winglet are 3 part to glue together , sand trailing edge.

there a jig included in the kit that you build the wing onto to get the little twist .
some cutting is needed to make the sheeting from balsa plank.

Some update not much, but sanding those block for ailerons take some time.

And you can see the jig for the twist.

oh yes pretty quick , and iam working at it only on evening , but even if it seems light and it is , i found a lighter , i think , and even faster build , the "art hobby Tigra E" , had to order it , haha .

but not sure the Tigra E is a real nurfugel now ...

But i will leave it in the box for some time since it would carry me away from my goal , to build the up2you VC .

Back to the silence.
Gluing leading edge rod straight and I will move on top sheeting that will seal the twist.

The Tiger E, with it's fin, is certainly considered a nurflugel...............at least according to the gigantic German Nurflugel forum.
