    A lot of the problem with airfoil selection is that there are already thousands of them. Yes, there's probably a near perfect one for your pet project, but actually finding it is VERY tedious. If anyone could point to (or create!) a database where you can search based on min/max Cl, L/D, Cm etc, a lot of us would be eternally grateful.

    I just ran across a guide to NACA and NASA documents relevant to light aircraft design.

    http://tinyurl.com/hpt5lmw

    or you could do a search on the NTRS server for:
    "A study of NACA and NASA published information of pertinence in the design of light aircraft"
    There are three volumes. From 1970
