KS118

You was able to see the polar of KS118 on the previous blog post. Here is the airfoil in question, it is very similar but slightly different from KS125.

Here is a wing simulation with this airfoil:

    I was prepared for the drag to be lower in the modern laminar flow section, but I was frankly shocked in seeing how the maximum L/D moved to such wonderfully lower values on your KS sections. You can really fly a plane near the max L/D, where the 21012 section you'd be flying a low L/D at cruise.
