I thought about that, as well. If the connection points are the same, they may not be... although a simple sheet of plastic would probably sag and flex significantly w/o those embossed channels... among other mounting problems.

On the other hand, a couple layers of CF on each side of a thin layer of nomex honeycomb... light AND stiff
