The main effect for flying with a tilted vertical stabilizer is that there will be some pitch coupling with rudder input. At the extreme, with the vertical stab tilted 90 degrees, it would then be a horizontal stab and the rudder would become the elevator. The pitch coupling from one or two degrees of tilt would not even be noticeable in most RC planes. And since most RC flyers seldom, if ever, use the rudder while flying it really would have no effect at all.
