    Airfoils for 426/428

    Has anyone used the Selig S8052 for a 426 or 428 wing? If so, how did it work out? The attached Xfoil runs are for a Q-500 wingsection at approximately 160 mph. The drag polars look interesting.

    RE: Airfoils for 426/428

    I used a Selig 2055 which looks similar to the 8052, on a Dayton Wright RB1. Good performance, given the relatively low power input. All around good flying/handling model, as well as being one of the best "off the board" I've built. Offhand I believe it was close to the 11.88% thickness shown in your spec.
