To start with a Viper Jet and then say an Sbach ? Two totally different wing forms and styles.

First - avoid dead flat wing - it will be extremely sensitive and liable to drop a wing at slightest hint in a turn. A touch of dihedral goes a long way to help.
Second - a flat bottom wing is not really that much easier, an aerofoil wing only needs a strip at T/E to jig the wing.

Suggest you check out :

Outerzone

Hippocketaeronautics

Two of the best all round plans sites on line.
