Re: Giant leaves

I don't see materials like aluminum, brass or fiberglas conforming to the "needs to be a light density paper or fabric" as stated in the first post. An armature/frame could be made of either metal or wood and covered with rip stop nylon. The RSN is used for parachutes (softer, fabriclike and plyable) and sails (stiffer like ultra-thin plastic) is strong yet lightweight, comes in all colors (opaque/translucent), available in large dimensions and UV safe.
