opinions needed: designing a high speed, high aspect wing

dear friends, hello there

I normally lurk in the glider section but I do have some wing experience.

my wing experience include Ritewing Mini Demon, Lightning 36 and TL50 (as you can see, I'm a fan of CK). I also fly Mugies.

Anyway I have some foam core and sheet balsa loose and I'll be sketching out a high speed wing with high aspect ratio.

It'll have a fuse

I'll probably put it at 25 degree sweepback and 90 cm span, no taper. you think that's ok?

but what I'll like to hear is your recommendations on the airfoil..... and whether I neeed to blend the airfoil nearer the tips to a more symetrical foil

Any thoughts?

I'll like to put a 2040 size 3900 kv motor into it though
