I'd be happy to experiment with different aerofoil profiles if you can find another so cheap and easy to use (eg another extruded aluminum one). The other extrusions I can fine are just generic ie no aero data.

I agree, but it must also be symmetrical, and chord length at some point becomes a factor in whatever the mid chord thickness is chosen.

All meaning to me, the thinnest possible at the requisite strength is the goal.
