Is that from centerline front wing to centerline stabilizer ?
If so, it only shows that you have some lift on the wing, even when the stabilizer is not lifting up nor down.
All front wings have lift at zero degree AOA (which is NOT parallel to the bottom of the wing)
Often named the "Beta" angle, which is the negative AOA the wing should have, in order to produce zero lift.
The angle of the fuselage and board means nothing (apart from parasitic drag and handling) - it is only the AOA difference between the front wing center line and stabilizer center line that matters here
Dont know if off topic or not - but I find it confusing talking about zero degree AOA without naming exactly what front wing profile that has been used.
Also a bit sceptical, IF the front wing really has zero degree AOA, as I think a few might call it "zero" if the bottom of the wing is "flat" on the table so to speak - eventhough the centerline has positive AOA, and when you add the Beta angle, you actually got loads of lift now
