Airfoil - NACA 64a416/4416 mod

  1. Mar 16, 2014 #1
    Hello,

    I am looking for coordinates data for the airfoil NACA 64A416/4416 mod. This airfoil was used on the DeHavilland DHC-2 Beaver. While the airfoil is listed on various manufactures lists no data, or image, of the airfoil is available. Can you tell me whether there is a reason this data is not given, or am I misunderstanding something. And, is there an alternative airfoil which can be used and where the data and an image is available. The information is required for a large scale model of the DHC_2 Beaver up to 140 inch wing span.

    Regards,
    Spud

    Hi Baluncore,

    I visited aeromech and found that by entering either 4416 (4 Series) or 64a416 (6 series) I finally get an image representation of an airfoil, plus its data. The other databases on the web dont produce either for the designations above. I dont know why but its a pity that they dont. All I need now is a method of coding the data for AutoCAD and Rhino so that the airfoil is automatically drawn. Many thanks for your help, it is very much appreciated.

    Regards,
    Spud

    Google; 'autocad naca profiles'
    There appear to be several available.
