8 degrees seems like a lot of downthrust - interesting.

What is the target airfoil that you are using for this wing?

Beautifully engineered!The splice below the tail particularly caught my eye.

Hi gentlemen,

The airfoil is the old cj3309. I like this airfoil because of the flat underside. It is very easy to build and the speedrange is also wide enough. I am using that successfully since more than 10 years. In combination with this airfoil and the distance between propeller and CG is the 8°down thrust neccessary.
I do not like a model which rises up at full throttle. With this configuration stay the model neutral and accelerates horizontally.
Tonight i will post the next pics. Because I am at the moment at my workplace

Last week I finished the manual for the future short kit (for europe). Here you can see more details from the new construction system. Unfortunately in german. but it is made 80% by drawings.
