I dont know if it can be soldered to or not, but I know NAPA auto parts used to carry brake line in long chunks that could be bent easily. The smaller the tubing the easier it is to bend. BUT like I said, I dont know if solder will stick, or if a good solder is going to hold it unless you spend the big $$$ and get some silver solder and silver solder flux. If you have access to a MAPP gas torch, you could probably use some Brazing rod and Braze the joints instead of soldering. It will be much stronger and last a lot longer. This would be worth the $50 for the torch kit IMO.
Personally, I think prop cages are overrated though.. =D
