After adding one more degree of decalage the plane is beggining to fly as it should, although the climb rate is a lot less than I expected. ...possibly even more decalage?  I am using 0.087 wide rubber, and so should get a really "hot" climb rate.   I think the wing fairings disturbed my expected angle of attack of the wing and so threw off my initial decalage setup

I need to build a very lightweight incidence meter that will read the angle of stabilizers of indoor models. Any suggestions?

the camera pulled away just when power went off...but it landed like it glides well.  to me, that means the incidence and balance are correct.  is it possible that you have too much downthrust in the model?

Climb looks about right for indoor.  IMHO.
