You would think that would be aerodynamic, but all of the advantages of that design would be for supersonic flight, and it would have some significant disadvantages in normal flight speeds. Lately, the most aerodynamic designs have been sailplanes and tandems.
Since you are interested in such a groundbreaking design, Im interested to see what you would build after taking into account the advances made my sailplanes and touring sailplanes.
I have been interested in motor gliders for quite awhile, but these days I'm a little more into speed and utility which includes something you can take off and land just about anywhere, camp in when you get there, and drive through weather. This is about the highest aspect ration one I've dinked with, and it'd have a front engine. The symmetrical airfoil that a delta requires precludes building anything that will have a 60 to 1 glide ratio. I'd make me happy to be able to scoot around on 25hp though.
