Default RE: longitudinal dihedral

Wing incidence... if the most forward part of the leading edge and the trailing edge are at zero relative to a fuselage reference line, or the mid-line of the horizontal, then you have zero incidence.
If the wing has any tilting up, then its incidence isn't zero.
Usually only a aerobatic plane with a symmetrical section might have zero longitudinal dihedral.
