flexible solar panels?

Any thoughts on these? I'll admit I haven't done my research on solar yet but thought this would eliminate the need to build a rack to hold my solar before I close in the roof. It would give me time to do my research and solar last... I can live without it in the beginning but I don't want it to be/look like a afterthought..

I heard they get excessively hot when secured directly to the roof skin, and cause premature wear on them.

I see everyone using brackets to mount there panels too, is that something I can buy at a box store or is it built special for panels?
