Harry:

The Clark Y is a really old, flat bottom airfoil. It was used on the Spirit of St. Louis and the Lockheed Vega. Has a very good lift to drag coefficient when scaled down for models, and the flat bottom makes it easy to build wings. Used a lot in model planes.

Here's a snap of Snoopy's new stab under construction, and an illustration of the perfect touchdown attitude- tail just slightly low, power a little above idle.
