Default Foam and where do I find it...?

I am new to this small electric world and am totally possesed with it, I want to build my own plane from plans but I need to know what foam board to use...also I sw some foam board at one of the Craft/Hobby stores in town and saw some what looked likw 1/4" foam...can that foam be used in building of these planes? If it is possible to get the foam locally?? If not where can I ge twhat is needed...? I am pretty clear on the rest of the motor, battery, and radio gear needed but I am not finding the answer to my lack of knowledge about the material needed to construct the plane.

www.depronusa.com sells 6mm white depron foam, that is what you will need to make a foamy

www.depronalaska.com also carries the same stuff is Depron USA is sold out.


If your looking for foamy locally, you won't find Depron, which really is the best stuff. Fanfold (blue foam) can be found at Lowes I know for sure, maybe Home Depot I am thinking, and is cheaper.
