I have a quick question for you KF airfoil experts...

I am kit bashing a Herr Cloud Ranger and want to change it to a low wing setup. I am developing a prototype out of 5mm foam board to work out the bugs before I construct the more permanent balsa build.

To that end, I have the foam fuse thrown together and I am working on the wing. Is there a KF wing that I can build out of foam that will work for this? I realize the KF wing and the standard built up wing will have different characteristics but at this point, Im not too worried about that. I could always mock up a foam built up wing too if need be.

The Cloud Ranger is a "typical" high wing, 4 channel, sport style plane. I do want to include ailerons on my test bed so that is a consideration here. These are the balsa kit specs:

Wingspan=42in (1067mm)
4 Channel Area= 324 inē (20.9dmē)
Weight=22.2oz

Any advice is appreciated and welcomed.

Dan
