If you are in the USA, it's easiest just to go to the Dollar Tree store. Walmart carries Ross's foam board which is a good substitute. My Dollar General carries Adams foam board which is the same stuff as the Dollar Tree.

Different countries have their pwn local suppliers and even versions of FB. Without knowing your country of origin those that might know your local supplier network may not post the information.

If you tell us your country of residence then maybe someone can help you with the local suppliers!

Have fun!

I am in Australia and Dollar Tree does not exist here!

The simplest places to find Foam Board are craft shops, photo/picture framers, Office supplies, and even those that print signs, (for election campaigns).

Believe it or not you can also use cardboard, coreflute, and the like to make the FT airframes.

If you have internet access various places will ship ANYWHERE. Even Hobby King is now selling FoamBoard i believe.

I have not been able to do a search on FB in Nigeria as the number of ads from exporters fill the search results and I could spend weeks going through them. Do a search for local businesses and you might find exactly what you are looking for locally!

Have fun!

You could go to the website of dollar tree’s supplier. RL Adams makes the foam that dollar tree sells. I’m not sure if they sell it online but you could try.

Adams DO NOT sell outside the USA and their minimum order is a TRUCK FULL. I talked to them, via email, they are super helpful and will answer questions that way but you are not going to be able to purchase board from them.
Your best bet is to use a US based shipping forwarder to receive an order from Dollar Tree and send it on to you. Not cheap but will be the only way to get Adams board except via a Flite Test stockist or Dollar Tree etc.
