Let's see, you want to lift 5500 grams on a 5.9 sqdm wing? That's 917 g/sqdm (300 oz/sqft for our imperial friends). Even a tenth of that would be considered heavy.

IMHO, it is safe to say that there is no airfoil that can do it.

I agree with jkettu, that looks totally impossible using the wing for lift. Even a helicopter or vertical lift model within those dimensions and restrictions, (max weight 500g, payload 5kg), would fail as well.

Are you sure your figures are correct ?
