What type of info are you looking for? That is, post a sketch on how you want it setup (do you want a ground, how far off?, velocity, size, etc.) and list what outputs you want.... I might not be able to do it immediatly, but if I can find the equation that governs that foil shape, I can model this in a few minutes and run CFD

Quick search from google got a cool flow visualization...

What's nice about NACA foils is that there's a lot of data on them already
