mine is perfectly straight, but, if ever there was anhedral when i glued it (i don't remember honestly, as cuts aren't always perfect from factory), i then pushed it until it'd be perfectly plane. if there was any it must have been small.

I would assume that anhedral affects the flight characteristics in a bad way.

I didn't cover mine, but if I were to, i'd use thin laminate like I do on bigger wings. It gives rigidity (unlike solar film & others). it also sticks well (some add some 3M spray to glue even better, but i never really need it). It may also curve the wing, so on has to be careful when applying either.

Also, it's ok to have some twist (tips of the wing more aligned with the ground than the center) as it brings more stability (some = 1-2 degrees, not more). Many wings actually have this twist from factory.
