BEC, Brian would have to address the issue of a different wing, but in looking at the fuselage sides, I'm not sure it would be easy to do. The LE of the wing fits a cutout in the fuselage sides, so some changes would have to be made to allow for dihedral. Not unlike the spacers that need to be inserted when going from a Dandy Sport to a Dandy GT to support the symmetrical wing. I'm sure that Brian could do it, but it would require some alterations to the fuselage side. On the other hand, I suppose he could do a sort of gull wing, with a center section to match the symmetrical wing and the fuselage, and then a different airfoil with some dihedral, outboard of the fuselage sides.
Maybe even have wing panels that plug into a center section? Only time (and Brian's creativity) will tell....
