I build in washout if I feel I need it. If the structure is not strong enough to hold it then I put in cross bracing in the wing rib bays to fix it in place. That way I don't have to worry about loose covering affecting the flying ability of the plane.

But, of my last 9 builds only two had washout, and it was designed into the structure, ie, the ribs and spars set the washout, no twisting involved.
