Putting fixed flaps on Parkzone Micro models for smaller gyms

We've got a couple people who are flying the Parkzone airplanes (Mustang, Trojan, Warhawk, etc.) in one of our indoor venues -- essentially a single-court basketball setup. The latest flyer is using a Mustang, throttled back but its more like pylon racing than flying. Trojans aren't as fast but all of them certainly leave the Playmates and TxR WW1 warbirds in the dust.

My Warhawk takes up about 2/3rds of the length of the gym before the tail lifts and it's ready to fly so it would be literally be bang the throttle, yank back, yank left, straighten, yank left, straighten, avoid the rafters.... faster than you can read them. Seriously not fun.

One of our former pilots had added flaps to his Mustang using stiff plastic sheets that have been bent. Haven't seen the plane this year so I can't pick his brains.

Anyone know where there are threads on this that I can rummage for?
