Default RE: How to remove dihedral from wing center section?

Thanks for your ideas guys. Oscar, the 4*'s don't have tapered ribs, just maintain the same thickness section all the way out. Same deal with the wing on my Ultra Stick which has zero dihedral. The difference though, is that the U. Stick is a high wing plane and the 4* is a low wing plane.

Rcpilet, being a low wing plane, that's a good idea to leave a little dihedral. I like your idea of making a balsa shim. I kept thinking it would have to be harder wood for some reason.

I like the way my 4* 40 flies with stock dihedral, but I think it would be a bit more fun and stable during inverted manuvers with less dihedral.
