Hi Nadine. . . .you mean the air-foil?. . . .yes its the same for the span of the skyvan's wing. The skyvan has what's better know as a "candy-bar" wing and a flat bottomed naca airfoil, which is very similiar to what is on the shorts 330 & 360.

Hi..
I ask you because in one drawing plan i found that at the leading edge ,at the center of wing,have 3mm spacing and at the tip of the wing have 1,5mm spacing!
Is no flat surface and i understand that is made for stabilities on the landing do to the smal chord area!?I attached the plans
What size of motor do you use,for the plane?
