Good idea, but I have too many projects already heaped up around this computer and workbench.

That is why I posed the question. It seems that a reflex airfoil would have less drag - unless there is a moment advantage to the rudder drag. In your example that would mean moving the drag plate to the rudder TE.

I may have one of those models laying around someplace. Could be a quick test.
