College Solar Plane Project

#1
I am proposing a college project to build a flying wing from foamboard that will carry solar cells and possibly supercapacitors to augment the use of a smaller flight battery.
Initial ideas are based on this project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMkPjBf6dNQ
Even though this wing flies well, I would like to be able to take the rearward shift in C.G. into account and redesign the wing accordingly.
The other option is to go with a swept straight wing and I was looking at something similar to this one: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1586976
Any thoughts, ideas or links will be greatly appreciated.

Maneuvering With Purpose

I am also interested in this and I am working off the same work as in your YouTube vid. I would like to see redundancy however. Two engines, two cameras, two auto-pilots...
