Is practical use twist (geometric or multiple airfoils to improve stall characteristics) when it has lift coefficient distribution ideal or near due to wing plataform?

I am analyzing a "Schuemann" wing, and I am in the dilemma of whether to use a twist (multiple airfoils or geometrical) to improve stall and look for compromise or investigate other forms directly (vortex generator, e.g.).

Is to a Sailplane project

  • $\begingroup$ Stall warning. I chose the airfoil with higher max AOA and docile stall. Thanks $\endgroup$
