Hello every one. ....
I am getting a keen interest in RC flying ........started to have hands on free simulators available online....
I came across a website by name "flitetest.com" (most of the people may be aware of this).

I am pretty much impressed with their designs of sctarch builds foam planes, but the problem is I am not able to get the kind of foam they are using to build their models.

They mention the foam as "DOLLAR TREE FOAM BOARD" which is laminated with a craft paper on both sides.

Can anybody pls help by giving information about where can I find such type of foam board in India.

Pls help.... Roll Eyes

The foam used by Flite Test won't be available in India. You'll have to go with material available on local hobby shops and stores like Depron. Coroplast, HD Thermocol, etc...

Could you please tell where is it available in Delhi?
I'd tried to search it at numerous places... Bang Head Bang Head
Also, what are the dimensions and price of the foam?

Do you suggest using that foam? Actually, one of my friend wants to place an order from the store recommended at flight test for that foam and there is a minimum order limit of 100 sheets. So, do you suggest investing in this....?
