Hey Guys (and Gals),
So I want to design and build a plane that is, small, fast, and maneuverable.
I have been thinking about a delta wing with an elevator in front and slightly below the wing. On the delta wing, there are winglet tips that curve upward to act as rudders.
Any comments or ideas? When I have the final design complete I would be more than happy to post the plans for download for free.

Have any pics of it?

Its just foam not perfection. build it close to the plans and it will fly, then learn to customize. But most of all, JUST HAVE FUN!!!!!
Cuz tooling around is just not my style of flying. Full stick and full travel control surfaces.

Boeing's Phantom works did something like that.
Check out the F/A-XX build thread here and the FX-2 "Sea Eagle" there specifically for some more ideas.
