Wing Burners?

Has anyone had experience with wing burners? I have always wanted to make a more realistic wing and was thinking of buying a set of wing burners. How well do they work and what winging materials are best suited for use with wing burners?

Wing Burners

Uptrout, I've never tried any of the commercially available wing burners but I made one by grinding the end of a pair of tweesers to the shape I wanted. They seem to work just fine so I think the store bought models would do the same.
