No you don't have to angle the motor. Some of the plans say to, but pretty much everyone builds everything straight now. A lot of folks use the BUHOR with the flat wing for a sport plane. If you wanted a faster roll rate, you could probably chop a couple inches off the end of each wing without hurting anything other than increasing your wing loading a bit. If you build it straight to plans, you'll get a nice airfoil like they show in the plans. If you wanted a symmetrical airfoil, you can glue the trailing edge first, then slide the spar in and get it where you want it, and then drizzle CA down the wing where it meets the spar.
