Eric Kut replied to MAerialPhoto's discussion Glider vs Flying Wings wich is better?
"Here my 2 cent:

If you really want to discuss efficiency, tailed designs are better. They need less wing area to carry the same weight, and you have an excelent performance with flaps, for short, easier and safer landing and takeoff. Less wing area…"
