I downloaded the plan for the Honey Bee'stonian from the Plan Page.  It is a very nicely drawn plan for this cute little plane but it leaves me with two questions.
First, search as I might, I could find no indication of the dihedral for the V-tail.  From the picture it appears that it might be 45 degrees for each side.  That seems awfully severe.  I would appreciate it if anyone could tell me what the dihedral for the tail should be.
Second, the decalage on the plan is 0 - 0.  Would it be advisable to build in one or two degrees of incidence in the wing?
Of course, any other comments or suggestions about this plane would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your comments.

This is it, I believe, for the v-tail dihedral.

How could I be so inobservant?  Thank you, sir, for your usual helpful response and for nudging me gently to pay a visit to my optometrist.

That is my design based off of pictures from Walt Mooneys build. Build it per the plans and she flies great.

I like it.  What kind of wheels do you have there?  Are they available anywhere?

Scigs:
Thank you for posting the photos of your Honey Beestonian.  What a nice build of a very appealing plane.  This is a must build.
