Dihedral? Yes

I might be a bit late to the table but The Shrike, Shredder, Spyder all have dihedral. Yes, not a lot but it is intentionally there. You really can't see it because there is just a smidge. (engineer talk)

As Doug suggested it takes away the appearance of anhedral but it also helps with flight performance as Tim mentioned.

In a plane as small as your design you could easily use a 1/4" wing rod without any problem.

The wing planform and tail group look fantastic. I love what you are doing. If you need laser cut Delrin wing control cams let me know. I am sure the ones that I use on the Shrike would work well in this design.

Good luck. It's great to see all these great new twist wing birds showing up.
