Default wing incedence

HI guys , this is a dumb question so I put it into the newbies area,
I have an old trainer and I know its been into a few crashes, so to say, I was checkin the incedence on it and the root incidense is way different than the outer . I know there is some wash out on a trainer but how much should there be and what would happen if I matched the incidence with the tip and the root , where talking 3 to 4 degrees difference and it seems to be negative or tip nown trailing edge up. I guess I dont think about it much anymore because everything I build now has "0" everywhere except for the motor mount that is usually a few degrees of thrust. Anyway someone wanna help me out with this one. I want to make it true again for flying so someone could learn on it. Thanks in advace guys.

That is not uncomon on a trainer. It keep the tips from stalling before the rest of the wing.

You can just leave it as is (Providing both tips are the same)

G'day Mate,
As Minflyer said, it's ok if both sides have the same amount, it's called washout.
