Get an electrical conduit bender, bunches of 3/4" or 1" metal conduit, some tarps and kevlar thread. Bend the conduit into a frame you like then take it to get welded(thats not terribly expensive), lay the tarp on top of the wing structure, fold the tarp over the top and sew several seams along it with the kevlar thread.
Everything else is straightforeward, just be sure to pick a best answer before testing this contraption.

Have fun! :D

Bamboo, bedsheets, and duct tape.  Go, MacGuyver, go!

Seems like they once did something moderately successful on Junkyard Wars involving plastic tarps and bamboo, but they didn't go high enough to die when they inevitably crashed. Man, I miss that show.

See answers to the other copy. If you have to ask, and if you're using the word "cheap", you're probably  gonna kill yourself. Find a club and get expert advice.

Awww, you're no fun at all.  Think of it as evolution in action.
