The list of badly-conceived flying wing designs in patents seems to be endless  ::)

Hello Sir - what do you find to be badly-conceived about these designs?

They appear like they would be quite able to fly (even if they'd have less than optimal efficiency).

Yeah, except for the landing gear configuration / float volume. I don't see any reason why these designs couldn't fly.
