Default B Ae Hawk jet airfoil section

Can anyone advise me on a decent symmetrical airfoil section for a smallish Hawk jet that I intend to scratch build.

I have access to Profili2 airfoil software.


Thanks!

The Selig 8020 is originally meant for use on all flying stabs for larger sailplanes. But it would also be good for a smaller sport model. It's quite resistant to stalling and has quite a wide low drag to angle of attack bucket. It's about 9 or 10% thick.

Selig 8020...sounds good. I'll print that out!


Also can you advise me on an airfoil section for my next winter's own design scratch built project?
It's based on the Canadian Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow that, I understand, although highly promising never actually entered service. Imo it's a great plane and I must build it!
The model will have an approximate span of 35inches for .46 - .53 2-strokes.


Thanks for your input!
