Default Zero wing dihedral amount?

I posted in the Platt thread now decided to ask all of you.

Anyone know the spec for the Zero Wing dihederal, I've seen posts on the web 1 in 10 (5.71 degrees) to 6.5 degrees.

I ask because looking at the Platt plans the dihederal seems a bit high.

the Platt dihedral as shown ( 4-5/8" for 34-7/8" at W11) = 7.6 degrees- it looks high.

Ziroli Zero plans show 4.5" at 37" = 6.9 degrees

Hal Parenti Top Flite 60 Zero shows 6-5/8" for 61"ws or 3-5/16" for 30.5"
