Check for airfoil suitability. For plank design and flying wing you will want to select reflexed airfoil to ensure stable flight (PW series etc).
Just my opinion, I'll be glad if I'm wrong.
Otherwise great design, I like combination of 3d printing, carbon tubes and light covering film.
What software are you using for modeling?

Thank you for the comment, you are right. Tahe a look on my lidl glider modification projects. The original wing got ruders with upsweep for stabilisation. The naca profile of the wing got the same modification, it is similar to the modified wing, but some percent thicker.
The modified origial wing behaved very well. I fly this for nearly one year now. In spring i will test this new version of the wing.
I use http://airfoiltools.com/airfoil/naca4digit for the naca profile data.
I use openscad for design.
The scad file is included.

Hi Markus, thank you for your reply, it's all clear now.
I'm looking forward for updates on testflight and also can't wait for your next designs.
Great work!
