Default Flash Drive Mass Storage/SSD?

Who hasn't wanted to try this out some time? Basically, if you have done this before, would it be possible to make a relatively fast semi-SSD-device from USB expanders and a LOT of 64gb flash drives?

Could you make it into one virtual drive? Or would you have to use each one separately?

I'm sure this has come up before

I've heard of merging drives from inside the drive manager but can't remember how it's done.
Besides if you merge the drives and one of them craps out, you're gonna be in deep do do...

Yeah i can see how that could be a problem, but how would it use each flashdrive? Would it move down the line or make duplicates of them all?

Any way to do raid 5 with this setup? That would provide at least some redundancy.
