No. less sweep would make the need to use a genuine reflexed airfoil greater. Sweep is generally your friend on flying wings but you need to combine it with twist and a suitable airfoil. To be honest the airfoil you are using is close to the worse imaginable for a flying wing, that's the root of the problem.
