I agree that for most people it doesn't pay to order online, but it may for you if you need light wood and consider gas and sales taxes. I live in Lake Wales and I have to travel to Orlando to get any good quality, light weight wood from either Graves or Bob's hobbies. The gas cost is $20 plus I have to pay sales tax. If I need it right away, I go that route. If I can wait a few days, I can get better quality wood and have it shipped to my home. (I can order from Graves and it is delivered next day also!) I haven't been able to find any local craft stores locally that carry any wood that I can use for R/C. I do larger power planes, but If you are doing electrics, you really don't want to use a lot of heavy type balsa wood.

Best wishes,

Scott Smith
