Need help with airfoil design on forward swept wing...

I'm building a foward swept wing edf of about 18-19" ws. It'll most likely be powered by a microfan or similar and hopefully come in around 15-18oz (with retracts). ...I'm trying to cram as much as i can into a tiny space. Anyways, i'm looking into airfoils for this design and would like relatively good slow speed as well as 3d and high speed. I'm looking at mh22, rg14, sd6060 and some others. I've just never seen anything on FSW airfoils and was wondering if you all could help out. I'm also thinking it may not matter that much since i have such a small wing, but at the same time, i need a good wing design because of the small wing.

Anyways, as you can all tell i have no idea what i'm talking about and would greatly appreciate your help.

Andy Lennon wrote a book dealing with the design of R/C air craft, one chapter of which dealt with FSW's. You might want to get a copy from the local library. Might save some time and effort on your part.

I believe the title is "Designing R/C Air Craft"

Try.. go with the X-29 design. It had a fairly moderate chord for the inner 2/3, and very aggressive outer 1/3.
