Sentri and Zephyr wouldn't be able to fly as is, at least not as model aircraft.

The Thunderbolt is another candidate. You might be able to make it work depending on how you worked the nacelles and their fins.

Oh, of course the Sentri would need modification, probably by making the air foil less bent.

I'm not sure why you think the Zephyr wouldn't fly, is it because its a flying wing?

All it would need are minor stabilizers, and if I didn't want to change the shape that much, then there's someone who has found a way to make tailless RC aircraft fly.

Here:

Also, there are flying wing RC kits, though they have some kind of stabilizer on the end of the wing.

I had thought about it, though I thought it would be more work than the ones I listed.
