Default warped wing

What can I do to fix my warped wing problem? I just got a foam Cessna 182 from Art-Tec thru Hobbie Lobbie. The main wing has a little anhedral instead of a little dihedral ( in other words it curves down instead of up ). Is there a way to fix this? The wingspan is about 38" and.The servos are already mounted in the wing. Thanks in advance. I have a lot of experiance, but am new to foam.

Do you know what type of foam it is? If EPO, you can run some hot water over it, or use hot steam, then you can manipulate by slowly bending it back.
Has it got a wing spar?

If you just got this I'd call Hobby Lobby and ask for a new wing. They are very good about customer service.

I had one of those the wing did have a slight anhedral to it not a lot but it did have some.I want to say this is built in to the wing, so that in flight the wing straightens out under load. If you notice there is no wing struts with this pane to stop the wing from flexing in flight, hence the anhedral.
