Tailless airfoil? DS machine?frontside sloper?


Hi all,
I am building a DS machine slash front side speed machine. What is the best airfoil to use? EH series? or what. What Camber? What percent in thickness?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Are there many threads asking these same questions?

If you want to build your own, PW51. If you would rather buy one, JW.

Poway? You guys combatted last weekend... and this hurricane is going to give east winds over the mountains! Looks like Mt laguna's inaugral weekend to me.
