Default RE: longitudinal dihedral

well, it doesn't really reply to my question. Do not mix wing incidence with V longitudinal dihedral. The V angle is related to wing incidence by construction, CG and flying caracteristics.
Modifying the V angle modify the flying wing incidence and flying caracteristic. At 0 stabilizer angle, the wing incidence will be 0 (in my Discus CS case), wich will be not right. As I cannot move the wing incidence, moving the stabilizer incidence will move the wing incidence but will also move the way the plane will fly, tail up or down, not having the max of airfoil performance.
