The usual stores that I goto for buying depron/biofoam no longer have it Sad  I tried Leader and Venus stationery. They say it is because of the ban on "thermocol". Does anyone have any other sources in Pune/PCMC where they buy depron from?

Thanks!

Got some at ABC Chowk. But that was 3-4 years ago.
Sbajare sir (instructor and old Pune resident) told me there is a problem in getting depron in Pune.

You can look at vortex-rc.com.
Many options of size, number of sheets etc.

Unless you want to search in Crawford Mkt, Mumbai...

Thanks for confirming. It seems like vortex RC does not have it in stock either

Human mind is like a parachute, works when open



Balsa will be and always be the best material for model aircrafts as there is no other alternative. The build process is time consuming but it teaches you many things in the process. Alternative materials cut the build time by half but the models do not have a lifespan the balsa models have.

Inspite of the best alternative materials Balsa will have no match.

what you say is right but for a new pilot or a trainee crashing a balsa would be a costly affair.
