Hi Mark, I've tried to rationalize your wing with straight lines and multiple panels. It looks pretty reasonable. Anyway - based on what I've been able to do, it does look as if you can get some elevator effect from the pitcheron panels.

Have you decided where you are going to locate the starting CG???

Do you happen to have the pitching moment data for that airfoil? If you don't have published data, but you have run it on XFLR5, then it would be the point on the CM curve where CL = 0.
