Default SIG Hog Bipe Upper Wing Incidence

Anyone know what the top wing incidence is supposed to be for a SIG Hog bipe?
Pranged mine up a bit on takeoff last week. Hit a large red ant mound and kind of cartwheeled it into the ground.
Ripped off the gear and hole in wing. Bent the center cabanes a bit so some pressure is needed to realign the mounting holes in the struts. After assembly everything (horiz stab, lower wing and top wing) all come out to zero, zero, zero. Checked the (very old) build manual but nothing said about incidence (except line up the holes). Can't find the original plans to measure.

Usually on bipes top wing is about 2 degrees positive but don't know (or recollect that I ever measured) on this one.

Anyone know for sure?
TIA, G42

Golf-

sorry this may be to late......but if you’ve flown the Hog you know 0-0-0 worked. That is what is called out on the plans.

0-0-0 may be what is on the plans but may not be what works the best. IMO setting the lower wing to +1 and leaving the top wing at zero will work better.
