Some of those look like they either have mylar panels or are extremely vented!
Beautiful work indeed! I hope you've been able to take some time off and enjoy your creations.

There is no Mylar.. Only Icarex, White Screening and open holes.
Extremely Vented would be the correct term ;)

Thank You all for the compliments.

As a proud owner of one, they fly like a dream.

If you are considering a REV, buy one of his instead.

Great job!
