Default RE: 1/2a speed plane wing design

Tim

Looked around the SWR's at the 1/2a forum and couldnt see any mention of any particular airfoil (if any) they were trying to carve into them. Figured the guys on this forum should know whats-what when it comes to chosing a airfoil with straight line speed in mind. Sounds like (according to combatpig) it is not as critical as I would have thought. I think the hardest part will be carving both wings identical so as not to introduce any roll at high speed. I will post some pics on the 1/2a forum when construction starts.

Thanks
