Careful, there are plastic coverings, and plastic coverings. The commonly available plastic coverings in most hobby stores for RC planes is WAY heavier than tissue, and WAY, WAY heavier than the indoor mylar. Even the lighter RC coverings (Coverlite or Microlite) for the newer indoor RC planes is heavier than good tissue.Though a paper covering can be light, i found that a plastic covering* can be just as useful and light. Plus it makes the wing struckture more study during flight and building.
*a plastic covering can be procured at most hobby stores. This plastic is the same as they use for model planes. It is a little more expencive than paper but it can be applied more sturdely.
