Instead of using kfm3 I am going to use kfm2 airfoil
as kfm 3 will make the wing more thick.
so is kfm2 equal to kfm3 in terms of lift produced.

or I should go for other airfoil.

I've made many changes in the plans

use a 8*3.8 prop, as specified on the motor specs.... if you use a prop with too much pitch, it can strain and burn the motor...

If it's low desity Thermocol, use CF rods for reinforcement and layer it with packing tape for strength.   Thumbs Up

20mm should be fine for a 42" wingspan. Just sand the leading edge to make it more like a blunt knife edge.

this motor can also be used with a 3s so I don't think 8*6 is too much but if it is more then I'll change the prop

850mah? for a 42" WS? thats a bit low, even a 1300mah 3S is good enough.
