Default Help with mini TurboJet UAV Airfoil

Iím a mech Engr student and having a hellava time with this whole flying aero stuff. But, out of my senior team, I know the most. Help would be much appreciated.

My team and I are creating a turbo jet UAV and Iím struggling to put my parameters into an a NACA airfoil (or other airfoil). Weíre looking at carrying 50lb weight with 50lbf of thrust (probably positioned under the wing). Each wings can be max 3ft long.

The run way is 800ft. It doesnít need to fly for long (1/4mi, or like 20min max). 100mi/hr is max velocity (gotta keep it with in legal flying regulations). I was thinking of using a regular wing shape, or a sweep back.

Do you have any suggestions or recommendations for the airfoil. Other advice is also welcome.
