IMHO a good idea when thinking about something a bit odd is to make a balsa chuck glider. Make it big enough to be representative (>18" span). That way you can find the C/G etc. and if it is generally a good idea without braking the bank.

As for the section, nothing with too low a camber. With all that fuselage it won't be quick and modern low camber sections rely on the airframe being low drag to give an efficient overall aeroplane.
