I am not a builder but I have a lot of respect for those who like to build.
I have been preparing a section of my weekly newsletter on Bagging Wings. There will be a presentation at our club on the topic at the next meeting.
I think I pulled together some good resources so I am going to post them here for those who might be interested.
And I encourage anyone who knows hot to bag wings or who has question about bagging wings to post in this thread. Maybe we can get a good exchange going.
If my club is interested we might start a "one design" group build around a bagged wing project. If it happens I will let you know and share a link to the discussion.
BAGGED WING GLIDERS – THE LOW COST WAY TO BUILD COMPETITIVE TD, ALES and HAND LAUNCHED GLIDERS
Many of the gliders flown at the ESL contests at our field are bagged wing designs.
Learning about bagging wings will open up a whole new world of options for you. You can make DLGs, larger models, winched gliders and electric gliders that look and fly very much like the high end molded wing gliders.

He is not making a wing, he is making a part on a mold
This could be used to make 1/2 of a fuselage
The process is similar for wings as you will see in the other videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jSwx_EkJgM
Wing bagging videos – to give you a flavor of what it takes:
Glider design discussion based on a bagged wing Supra. This conversation goes back to 2011 and is still active today.
If you want to read a bit about how people take an existing design, the Supra, and modify it, this is an interesting discussion. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1528685
OK, You made the wings. What about the rest of the parts?
