Hello from New Zealand

I'm a complete noob in regards to r/c flight and builds.

I have just brought a spektrum dx6 and phoenix 5 flight sim to get some stress free practice in.
I am looking at building a ft versa and maybe a ft tiny trainer, however I'm finding the foam board hard to find.
I have found this Foam Board do you think it will be suitable for the builds?

thanks for any info you can provide

No they don't. I would suggest using depron for you planes. When I was on vacation there in feb I didn't get a chance to go shopping for that stuff but I know its hard to find outside of the us
