I understand your thought but to me the airfoil looks like 400mm high at the leading edge and only 175(50 stepplane plus 125 difusser height) drawing a line through the front radius and the trailing edge the profile is directed downwards and will not produce much downforce if any.In the context of the beamwing I have to admit that suddenly the whole arrangement looks almost like a slot gap 2 element wing and I´m not so sure if this whole thing could not produce downforce....
