Default Aerofoil Selection

Anybody got any advice on choosing an Aerofoil? I've got a book with millions of them listed in the back complete with ordinates. The plane is being entered into a payload competition so a High L/D ratio methinks! I would ideally like it to be a fairly slow flyer too. cheers

Default RE: Aerofoil Selection

A very popular topic 'round these parts. I'd suggest you try some searchs with the RCU search function in this section and the Aerodynamics section. Try the keywords "SAE" and "load". The results will keep you busy for a few hours of reading.
