A cub type model with a flat wing looks like the wing halves are drooping. A little dihedral won't hurt aileron effectiveness and may help stability. Hint: if you use two micro servos with a Y harness for ailerons, have the servo arms angled forward. This will give you more up than down motion of ailerons, similar to using differential ailerons to avoid "adverse yaw"
and make model turn easier. Use aileron/rudder mix if your transmitter has it, makes turns much easier and graceful, you can switch it off to manually coordinate rudder and aileron inputs. Use nudges of rudder as needed to keep model running straight during takeoff. Use up elevator to keep tail wheel on ground during first part of takeoff run and after touch down on landing.
