I was thinking three socks. One over VS/rudder. One each over HS/elevator. Each side zippers to the vertical sock. The HS bottoms are bungeed or zippered. Straps sewn into the fabric end in rings. Rings at the tail are clipped with a carabiner to hold it all together. Could be tied down as well.
My wife is a seamstress. I may have her throw something together. Made from something strong and light like the material for tents. Sheds water and breathes.
Something like this "rip stop" kite material.

I cannot be, nor will I be, held responsible if you try to do the same things I do and it does not work and/or causes you loss, injury, or even death in the process.
