Build in the washout using shims, it's not difficult. Washout is not a complete twist along the entire wing. Putting washout in after the build via twist and reheating covering is generally for the outer 1/2 of the wing anyways. Don't warp the board... that will be to difficult and then what.. you'll need another flat board. Cubs are gentle flying highly stable planes once in the air. Washout will help on slow speed during landing but is not completely necessary though I recommend it. Differential will be worthwhile to program in and you will need to fly with the rudder for nice turns and apply it on takeoff as well if you want nice scale ROG..
