Hobby Lobby carries plastic spools just like the paper spools I have. Having slept on it, I'm going to try them instead and see. They will be much lighter than the screen door rollers and smaller. I won't think any more about running the bottom of the rubber band pulley belts under the wing, that would cause major problems with drag having two open bottom sections in the wing. I can sand the plastic spools down to get them to around 1/2" while still having a 6/16" hub. I'm back to building a 48" plane.
