Airfoil section for flying wing


Could anyone suggest an airfoil section for root/tip for a Slinger/Zagi style flying wing ? Please.

I need the root section to be deep enough, hopefully to accomodate the battery ( 8cell KAN1050's), Hitec 4ch rx and a couple of mini/micro servo's.......I'm expecting the span to be around 40 inches powered by the usual speed 400 motor.......

Strengthening would probably be achieved with some form of "buried" spar.......aint worked out what yet......


So thinking caps on guyz........I'd appreciate any help/suggestions

I have a Zagi 400 and a Combat wings EX2.You can't compare the two.Try to model your plane after the EX2!

Ive used the MH45 on a few wings as well and its a great flying wing airfoil. If you want a fast wing just thin it out, a little slower (like a zagi) just thicken a little. I recomend using a thinner version because the speed range seems to be a little wider.

Best regards,
