inexpensive, I have little desire to buy one. And, so, the questions...

In email, Ari mentioned the need for a bit of down thrust.
That's easy if you're scratch building. But what I still don't know
is what the angles of incidence between the wing and stab, and
the Slow Stick fuselage are.. Are they 0 / 0? Or is there
some positive incedence built in?

Del,
the front wingpost is 1 centimetre higher than the rear wingpost and they are about 30 centimetre apart. Downthrust is 0, which leads to nose up under full throttle. I changed that.
