    Boy thats for sure, when i bought my first one i came across this site, and i tell u all the people here r very helpful and there is lots of good advice and experience, i love this site!!!! 
    My son wasnt into the planes either( he is 17 and 6' tall) but he is going to a school here (hutchardson caree center) and he is learning and wanting to stick with  2 stroke motor work, mostly for his polaris sleds he builds, but them 582 r not much different, i c he gets more into the plane idea as time goes on, so in time them kids grow and they will b into it also if they into building.  But if he dont i sure enjoy build a plane in one garage stall while he builds another snowmachince in the other stall.

    Im thinking make out of some kind of good strong all weather wood, glue them to wingstruts (obviously) them make it easy by wrapping it all in 2"-3" wide trim tape from Auto Trim Design in my choice of color to match or contrast the color of plane.

    Yeppers good idea and cheap,  ill b grabbin one of those myself, that hyper tough brand at walmart is pretty damm good stuff, i buy the electrical tape and zipties there, cheap as hell and everyone of the zipties work and hold, not break b4 u get it tight like some other cheap ziptie brands out there. Think was around $5 for 250count of 8" long, and about $2-3 for the small 4" think 100 count, and u can buy 3 rolls of electrical tape cheaper than just buyin one at a time.
