Can anyone please tell me or measure how thick the Takuma foil is at it's thickest point? I'm thinking of making a low aspect, thick, high area wingset for my spitfire to see how far i can push the low end while still retaining maneuverability. I can get 3/4" (19mm) g10 for $100 so I figure I may as have a go.

Any opinions on different Moses wings? I'm looking at you, Gunnar ;)

I have the 550mm wing and wondering if the 558 or the 600mm high AR wing would make more sense later on.

What about different stabilizer wings? Is it necessary to change it as well to match the front wing?
