There is about 2* washout built into the wingtip rib in this kit, SIG thought of everything with it, even comes with pinned hinges instead of the non-pinned version.

Have you made a decision on the controls for the rudder and elevator? I'm going to put the pull-pull on the rudder like I have all my other planes and on the elevator I'm going to put in a single pushrod with a dual outlet on it so the elevator level across in flight for more realism.
The washout is necessary for the full length of the ailerons so that they remain more effective while the inner wing is stalling.

I was looking for that in the pics of post #36. It does not appear to be there. The wing tip rib alone is shaping the wing tip but will not provide the desired effect of washout.

Hinges with pins, very little friction, what I have been recommending all along. That is good.
