Then there's the issue of yaw control.  Flying wings don't have a great way of doing this, although this new research suggests that their need for yaw control could be greatly reduced.


The boring practical issue with no yaw control (for me, at least) is that your landing approach becomes an all-or-nothing affair. Better hope your approach is perfect or you get to play a rousing game of dip the wing into the tarmac.


For most other purposes bank-and-yank seems to work fine for me.
