What I saw at Fabricland was nylon both sides filled with fleece or stuffing of some sort. Looked like coat material.

That sounds like something that would work.

I wish I had seen that when I was there.

The material my wife used was 22.50 a yard and it's 54 inches wide. She said 2 yards was plenty for the 1/4 scale plane wings!
total weight of the bag per wing is under 2 Lbs
Quilted vinyl she says!
Fleece/Terry cloth/nylon etc etc would get caught on the linkage for sure and rip in time
Just my 2 cents!

wing bags

A note on the truck front material, just make sure you don't leave them out in the sunlight, that black could go into the wing covering and do some nifty things.

Also, a note on the sleeping bags (by lomcevak). I made mine for my edge out of a childrens sleeping bag. It cost me $4 from Goodwill! I just stitched a thick flannel sheet down the middle and I put both wings in the one bag (with the nylon web handle). Servos to the outside so that they don't ding the wing.

Thanks for the tip. The bags have been in temperatures up to 32 so far with no adverse affects! but it is Monokote that has been tightened 20 times so far LOL
Good point though!

cut to size, attach velcro in relevant areas and there ya go.

I ended up getting an actual "Wing Tote" Gotta admit this thing will hold any of my plane wings (you can easily fold if the wing is smaller. I got a great deal and my wife advised that she couldn't make it that cheap.

Gonna be a great summer!
