All the pics and drawings I've seen of the FS planes show massive washout in the top wing and some have about half as much in the bottom. It might fly OK without but probably not as well.

Good Luck!

Edit: Nevermind, after looking at the pics some more I see you put it in there.

Oh, and I meant to say; nice work!
