Most airfoils stall at something close to 17* AOA, but I can't tell you for sure what what the correct zero angle reference is on the RV-10 because of the influence of the reflex.
If Steve (designer see's this thread, possibly he would be willing to comment)
Sorry for the thread drift, if a moderator wanted to break this off into a new thread in the RV-10 forum, that would probably be a good thing.
