If you have the original plans you see that the airfoil is the Selig 7014.  This is a very popular airfoil. My suggistion was to reduce the thickness to  around 8%.   John ________________________________ From: Squid <littlefr2003@...> To: BugHLG@yahoogroups.com Sent: Thursday, March 1, 2012 1:22 AM Subject: [BugHLG] Bug Airfoil - Selig/Donovan SD8040   Hi Guys, another question. I have been doing allot of airfoil comparisons with the current bug airfoil. So far the closet i have found is Selig/Donovan SD8040 <http://www.ae.illinois.edu/m-selig/ads/coord_database.html> . Ill try and upload a picture for you guys to have a look at. Maybe John while you are asking Carl about the legalities of me changing up his original design, (which im sure he would be happy to have his design evolve and be super stoked that there is such a cult following of his design) you could ask what airfoil he used? Also are there any suggestions for some variations in the airfoil? Thanks to every one out there for your input so far. It is all appreciated and its nice to no this is going out all over the world and hopefully it will be a good little boost to such a beautiful glider. Like Samson from Rc groups said "it looks like a piece of candy sitting next to my other models".
