Default dihedral on low or mid wing

im gona to scratch build from 3 views. i have a mid wing plan, but for simplicicty want to make it a low wing. my concerns are dihedral on the wing. it seems I can make the wing flat to avoid warping or deviations, but then would consider cutting the wing at midway if dihedral is required.

i prefer mainly to minimize stall characteristics. the wing is 60 inches, semitrical and has a 12 in constant chord with naca 0018. first i build the wing then the fuse.

im interested in nice quick rolls and plan on sufficient aileron size to handle this.

any suggestions? mid wing with X dihedral. low wing and Y dihedral?

maybe i should review the designs of pattern planes. Thanks!
