Same, im trying to find some in Canada,BC, Vancouver, but my local Convoy Supplies i think they only stock the fanfold with silver on one side and paper on the other.

I'm thinking of going down to Bellingham Washington(40min drive), but i phoned up their Lowe's but they said they only had the individual sheets, not the fan fold bundles D:

Originally made RCPowers Extra300 out of $Tree foam board (but the canadian equivalent) WITH paper and i doubled up on the foam. The plane weighed too much and flopped to the ground. (even though i'm real good on the simulator, maybe i should start with a regular jet that is more floaty like the f-22).

Canadian Lowe's only carry 1.5" and 2" thick Dow blu board.
Canadian HomeDepot carry Pink foam but it's really expensive ($10 a sheet). Too much compared to a $40 bundle of Blucor Fanfold.

Also, 99% of the posts i find about finding foam are from 2005 :S we're a bit late, but i question how the people growing up in the year 2020 will build their rc planes?

In the US most home centers still carry the stuff. You may find it in a different color such as Pink or Green. It is pretty much all the same stuff, so don't just look for the blue colored foam.
