if you read back ,,, I think the angle is done like that for a couple of different reasons to aid ground handling. and to ensure the wheels tuck into the thicker(stronger) part of the wing ..

Many years ago I swore never to get another PKZ plane. Oh how times have changed. Put me down for one also.

Well if you've cracked the fun sized stuff, 40+ inchers should be a sinch. Just remember that thing might move or react a little slower with the big stuff
