I can tell you from experience that you will need to have washout in both wingtips.

As far as the shrinking, a preferred method for this type of aircraft is to crumple the tissue into a tight ball, thereby breaking the fibers making it impervious to shrinking. Iron the tissue and place it with a glue stick. Nothing more. I really recommend that you do this now as the tissue you have on the plane will continue to shrink and change your flight surfaces. Plus how can you create washout without steaming and thus shrinking the tissue?

That said, it is a wonderful little flyer. I use 1/16 rubber and get 1 minute flights.
