I got tired of banging wings around when carrying to and from the field. So I sought out some wing bags. I found that they are rather expensive even for cheap ones. $20.00.

Great job creapyd and they look great as well.

I have this for a Piper L4. Only problem I had was the duct tape I used did not stick over time in the garage when it got hot and kept comming off. It's now in the basement and the tape is not comming apart anymore.
