Thanks for the response. The glass and polyurathane would be because I never have good results with a film over a solid wing surface. Poor technique.
The airfoil is a HQ 3.5/12 The instructions talk about installing flaps, the difficulty and benefits. I may ask one of the airfoil designers on the DLG group if he thinks this airfoil would respond well to flaps. Not his usual RE number range, but he knows how to run xfoil forward and backward.
I always hoped that if I had a big enough plane I wouldn't need to chase that last ounce. Not so.
