Hi Alan,
Yes, but the incidence pins are built in as far as I remember, so cannot be changed without quiet extensive work.

Rain tonight Steph, Hopefully tomorrow  :D
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Maybe Stephan means the incidence between the wing and the tailplane?  :?: :?:

Yes exactly (longitudal dihedral), my Big Lift was already build partialy when I got it, because I am a cautious person I verfied it and got 3°. I changed it now to 2°.
The wing dihedral I think should be 2° but I was not able to get this. I have now 0.8°, but thats ok. I cannot get more because I added some plug in mounts which are not designed originaly in the wings.

Thanks Fred. This evening I mounted the engine and I am quite happy. It's easier than I thought it to be.
