Plane Quiver

I picked up a plane quiver the other day from saoring usa. I could not fit one of my wings in the standard 68" bag, so instead I picked up an 80" model.

This is a BIG bag, and I was a little concerned about transporting lighter, lighter gliders to the field: the bag had plenty of padding and is made of a terrific cloth... only problem is that it does weigh a bit much for the omega 1.8e to carry.

A very easy solution was to pick up some 4mm coroplast. The chords run lengthwise down the bag. I then reinforced 85 percent of it with an additional layer that runs the opposite direction. A little gorilla glue, and it was perfect.

The bag now supports itself, rather than relying on the strength of the planes to form the bag into shape.
