Subject: Greetings...new builder
Good day all, My name is Justin and I recently purchased a set of Bug plans and am now looking to start procuring necessary materials. My LHS as some carbon rod that I think I might use for the boom, but their balsa selection is a bit lacking. Can anyone suggest a (few) good online retailer(s)? I have built a few kits (FF, some foam-wing, balsa fuse gliders) and want to tackle the challenge of scratch building. I have not, however, ever covered anything with shrink-fit covering. I am planning on using 2.4GHz gear (Spektrum AR6300 and ultralight Blue Bird servos). I will probably be pinging the board frequently with questions. Thanks!!! -Justin
