They are the same. Selig included his partner's initial along with his own for different series of airfoils. SD stands for Michael Selig and John Donovan. SA is another series but I don't remember who the A was for at this point (old age and all that ) The number is the important part. The letters are just an error one way or the other. The 3021 and 3014 are detailed in Soartech 8, which I just happen to have at hand, and are listed with just the S. Michael may have added the D to this early series later on or it may only be a mistake that you picked up.

Thanks for the quick reply Bruce.
Now if I can just remember why I was looking at them!
Probably had something to do with sailplanes. Oh Yeah...

Skorski, The S3021 & s3014 are ecxellent airfoils for a 2-2,5 m RES glider (or fullhouse). Often overlooked buy SD7037 or SA7035-36...Mabye that the new build thread, and why you searched for the foils?

There was no SD3012 nor SD3014, ever.

If you want better airfoils see:

I used a 3021 on a low-wing scale ship--it flew nicely once I got enough thrust-to-weight under its belt.
