Well, yes.
I took it to mean the thing had to approximate a wing section, but it is a fact that a model size wing is far more tolerant of aerodynamic outrages than is the case with a full-size wing.

Geek, we do not have to worry about scale effect. It seems that this proposed testing can be done on full-sized model wing sections at the low airspeed models typically use.
