Fokker DR1 wing incidence questionI have recently acquired a Fokker DR1 that was kit

I have recently acquired a Fokker DR1 that was kit built but was in rough shape. I have rebuilt the plane and it has a 60 inch WS with a Zenoah 23cc gasser. My question is the wing incidence, I blocked up the fuse so the mid-wing saddle was at 0 degrees. I then checked the stab and it was 3 degrees positive (good), the sub-wing I set at 0 and locked it down with a clevice and wire to the LG. Here is my question, the mid-wing would now appear to be at zero degrees, and I was thinking the top wing should be 1-1.5 degrees negative. Is this correct? I'm only thinking this because I set my Phaeton 90 bipe wings at those settings (0 bottom, 1.5 neg on top) and it flies like a dream. I know there are a ton of forums on this but can't find a definitive straight answer. Any help is appreciated.
