Hi Justin: It is a big Universe. Which galacy are you in? System, planet, nation, state, and city might also help. Assuming you are in the USA, you might want to try: http://www.balsausa.com/html/products.html http://www.hobby-lobby.com/ http://www.nationalbalsa.com/index.html and if all else fails: http://www.towerhobbies.com/ I have a huge hobby shop locally, and craft stores, that stock balsa. So try some of those first. Their prices are higher but there is no shipping and delivery is immediate.

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 ------------------------------------ Home Page - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BugHLG/ Yahoo! Groups Links
