I use foam core art board from Wally world, soak it in water and rub off the paper.

I was also able to find the 1/8" variety of SturdyBoard at my local Hobby Lobby. You still have to soak and strip it though.

I found some Readi Board it was $1.00 a sheet. It is about 3mm thick a little more brittle than Sturdy board but it was lighter and it worked well. I built a modified pizza box out of it. I used a twin GWS motor Hitec HS55 servos and Lipoly Batteries. It could hover for a minute or two and fly up to 10 mph. It was very controllable. The ready board did not need orderless CA! I was fired up Cheep foam board and regular CA how cool. It did not like the paint I used for some color so I dusted it on so the lacquer dried fast and did not have time to eat the foam. I will try to post some photos soon.
