FX60-100

• FX60-100-PT (Fig. 12.39)

From a quick glance the FX60-100 looks like a good airfoil; there are no signs of excessive bubble drag, and the width of the low-drag portion of the polar is similar to other 10% sections. Despite these qualities, the FX60-100 has not re­ceived wide acclaim. Possibly the unusually prolonged, thin trailing edge presents more of a construction problem than is warranted by the good performance. Or perhaps it was simply overlooked when the E214 became popular.
