The .PDF file below shows a top view, planform drawing of the wing. It includes dimensions of the foam wings, elevons, prop cutout, and CG placement.

The next .PDF files show the root and tip airfoils. The tip foil has 2 degrees of washout built in. I recommend using 0.9 lb./sq. ft. EPP foam and modifying the foils slightly so that the foam TE is 1/8" thick. Be sure to check your print outs for the correct chord length.
