I found the plane to be fairly forgiving. The wings can eventually warp a little with changes in moisture etc. but it still flew well even then. After 2 years I really had no idea what the wing incidences were supposed to be. I just made everything look symetrical and had washout on the upper wing.
Use low rates on rudder except to taxi. It is EXTREMELY sensitive to large rudder deflection. Take it WAY up high and give it full rudder and you will see what I mean. Be prepared. You will probably be in an inverted spin.....
Balanced properly it will cruise slowly past you and looks so nice.

I programmed in some elevator to throttle compensation. A little down elev.as the throttle advanced. Trimmed to fly level at lower throttle settings.

Great luck !
