Easy Glider Pro specs

Hey,

We purchased an easy glider pro for a school project, but haven't gotten it in yet and we need to attempt a SolidWorks design of it for machining.

does anyone know some of this information?

1. What is the NACA Airfoil #?
2. What is the dihedral of the wings?
3. What is the chord length at the root and at the tip?
4. What is the diameter of the 12x6 and 10x6 propellers?

Also, if someone has a SolidWorks drawing of it, that would be awesome as well.

This info will be very helpful, thank you

Propeller specs are Diameter x Pitch so:

12 inches and 10 inches

The chord length on mine Easy Glider is app. 7,87" root, and 1,81" tip. Measured as best as I could.
But there should be no problem to find out the dihedral. Just mount the wings, place the model on a table. And measure the distance from the tip and down.
