For my extreme sports game there are many surfaces that need collision. Before I invest the time into making models, will dbpro create collision planes for the model, or will I have to painstakingly put collision boxes in one by one? Also, will there be any way to get a return value on the angle of elevation of the collision plane hit?

The best solution would be to use a physics engine.
You could try the Physics engine I am developing for use with DBPro.
Check out the Work in progress post I have just released an alpha version to download.

I would suggest using Sparky's collision DLL.

Find it here:
Faster than DBP's native collision and you can setup complex objects with it. You do not have to setup collision boxes with it.

So many games to little time.
