I built one kit where I placed a spacer under the wing and tightened the covering. I wouldn't say it was unreliable, but it definitely changed over time as the covering aged and the seasons changed. I would check it from time to time and make any adjustments required....typically a quick session with the heat gun did the trick.

Building the washout into the wing will certainly have longevity, but it can't be changed if needed....or it would be extremely difficult at best.

So pros and cons for both methods! Guess it depends on your point of view and building skill/confidence.
