Default Twisted wing on Proudbird

Hi!
Noticed that both wing halves on my ProudBird was slighly twisted in the wrong way! Wash-in!
Have you checked yours?[]
Can be fixed though!

+1 unfortunately.
Mine was maidened on Saturday and quickly discovered it was well out of trim.. Put the incidence meter on her after and it was definitely off. Heated, cooled and twisted and then flew again.. It was better but still slightly off. I ran out of time but hope to work on it more again tomorrow.
Hopefully we are the only two..

Hi,
As more than one Proud Bird ARF seems to have this twist, can there be an advantage in pylon racing to have the wings twisted WASH-IN ?

Hi!
No!
Wash-in is no good! Makes a plane stall fast as h...
But it's an easy fix! Just heat the wing and twist it in the other direction!
