Practical effect of dihedral on DS models

Hi all,

What practical effect does dihedral angle have on a DS model? (ie, how does increased dihedral angle affect model stability?).

I can wrap my head around the theory (increased drag etc), but I was curious to hear flight reports.

it will limit roll rate which is important for maneuvering as you go up and down. Prolly more drag too than lift. Stability wise...Im not sure
