But maybe as a future experimental modification.
I think drag rudders would improve turn response without adverse yaw.
Similar designs Bright Star Millenium and Aeriane Swift'light both have moveable tip rudders inclined 30 degrees.
Pilots report much easier turning than the Bright Star SWIFT, which has vertical winglets, no rudders.
These rudders are not needed during take-off run.. that's where roll control with elevons is more important.
-very good=happy landings!
Just a suggestion -why not ask Ilan Kroo about his thoughts on any modifications and while at it his take on the "Kasperwing" (maybe we should give Brochoki his due actually as he is the prime designer --as Kroo was for the SWIFT. ) Like to hear what he has to say on vortex lift etc in this context..
