Debonair diheral

I am going to build a Debonair which calls for 5" dihedral.
If I reduce this to 3.5" will the plane still have trainer like handling?
Has anyone done this and if so what kind of results did they have?

I'm over here in Manteca.
This will be my 1st SPAD.
I went ahead and put the spars together.
I used Loctite Gel Control and the results look good.
Im going to test it on some coro and see how it works out.

When I built my Debonair, I had zero (0) diehedral. Flew fine and was easier to build the wing that way.
