I am Rishikesh Santhosh, currently residing in Kottayam, Kerala. I am in search of balsa wood for the construction of a fixed-wing drone intended for participation in the SAE Drone Development Challenge 2024. This project marks my inaugural endeavor into both drone building and piloting. I am reaching out for recommendations on sourcing balsa wood and seeking assistance in the procurement process, preferably from establishments situated in Kerala or nearby regions. Any guidance or support provided would be greatly appreciated.

@r_shksh,

Maybe too late for SAE 2024,
Maybe not the best choice of material,

But,
Balsa is available online.

Eg, two reputable sources:

https://www.aeromodelindia.com/product-category/balsa-sheet/
