I found it available (in large sheets) at my local Hobby Lobby Crafts store and RC Hobby Shop down in SW Houston. Michael's may carry it, not sure. You could try contacting Midwest Products and see if they'll provide you a list of local vendors near you.

My local michaels only has the $2 20x30 sheets and the Elmers foam poster board. I grabbed some of the elmers again.

Good luck with the job interview Dogsbd.
I fly mine with anything from a 3 cell 1400 to a 3 cell 2200 MAh but perhaps get the feel of it on 2 cells before stepping up to more power.

Ahh...good one. Completely forgot about them and I used to go there almost once a month! Thanks for the tip.

I also mentioned AMAZON.COM sells it. Not a bad price if you combine it with other purchases. I've picked up several sheets and they got to my house in one piece. They sell Midwest Products carbon fiber too.

No! Don't leave the paper on! All that weight!
Just use the kF steap and it will be alright.
I double most of my setups and they are still flying.
And if you take the paper off just one side,, it will warp real bad!

I am no foam expert, but can someone comment on the difference b/t cellfoam 88 and depron...besides the price difference?
I think they look and feel like the same material. I believe the cf 88 typically comes in 5mm while depron comes in 6mm.

10 sheets of 13"x39" depron is $50 with shipping from rcfoam.com and the cellfoam 88 is $13 for 2 sheets the same size at my LHS.

I think that midwest stuff is just expensive.

Got to agree with Dan on this one. I know from experience that it'll warp.
