    Wing dihedral

    If the wings are straight, what mechanism gives the wings dihedral? Is the dihedral set at the attachment points of the wings? How is this done?

    In the case of the Cub family, both struts are adjustable so dihedral is set by the length of the front strut and then washout/twist is set by the length of the rear. With some others (Taylorcraft and Champion-Bellanca) you're at the mercy of the manufacturer to get the dihedral correct, as the front struts are not adjustable.
