jasonbot is on a distinguished road

I am new to Fluent and need to generate airfoil polars for a 2D airfoil.What is the best procedure to do this?

My procedure so far has been to make a c-grid mesh and to run it in fluent, applying the velocity (thus far) at 0 degrees AoA. I could recalculate the velocity for each point but it seems like a long process and I'm guessing there is an easier way to just change the oncoming angle of the flow?
