Thanks for the info Leadchucker.
At present, the RF version is a bit heavier at 5.7 lbs, but lower WL at 9.2 as apparently the fuselage and stab airfoils are included in the calculation. I have no info on the individual component weights so there is a lot of guess work. Being a sim model though that can all get changed later as needed. The present wing airfoil is a AH 79-100A, and the stab a NACA M10. Per plans, the stab has a flat bottom is seems, and for now this is the closest choice I saw. Getting ready to start modeling the Forster 99 soon, but the other "engine to show" AXI 5320 is presently selected in the physics, swinging a Zinger 18x14 at 4369 RPM. Sal's original article suggested a 18x14 as a choice, so that's what was selected.
