    It depends upon what kind of information you want. One of the best over-all sources is the print media. Plane & Pilot magazine, Private Pilot, and similar routinely have articles on particular models, as well as tech sections and Q & A pages. You can also get manufacturers' brochures, the same as for cars.

    I'm pretty sure that Fred just posted a link to low-speed airfoils in the past week or so. Try a forum search.
