Default RE: wing warp

A warped wing can be straitened out (within reason) by twisting the wing and reshrinking the covering material.

This is best done with two people, one to twist and hold the other to work the heat gun.
(If you've ever played 'TWISTER' you'll be ready for this... )

If the wing is badly warped ... all you can do is improve the situation.
As you can currently fly the plane I think that with a little work you can return the wing to design specs.

Good Luck!
