Default Where to purchase Depron???

hey all, it's getting cold here in PA and I started looking for depron for this years foamies and I see that depronusa.com is no longer in buisness. ok, so where is everyone getting there depron from now, I have found lots of sites that sell "kits" but I need stock material to make my own. is there another alternative to depron (other than blue fanfold,yuk) thats more locally available? all of this years foamies will be for indoor flying. any help is appreciated!!

Robby, I'm not sure about the 2.5mm. I have however ordered from this company before and gotten good service.

As for other companies selling depron, I'm not sure of any. I was not aware that Depron USA's site was down either.... hmmmm......

NICE!! I'll be placing an order this weekend I'm glad someone brought this up... I've been looking around locally to purchase large sheets, but no luck. My LHS
sells packs of 2 sheets (15x48in) of that cellfoam stuff but its always warped
and they charge about 12 bucks for those 2 small sheets

Due to a recent medical problems, I've decided to close DepronUSA.
I would like to thank everyone that stopped by over the last 5 years.
In an effort to provide continued service, I am providing a link to RC Foam.
I apologize for the inconvienence.

I'm looking too. I've been trying to find a reasonable source for 3mm Depron in larger sizes. I've found RCfoam but they only sell 40 sheet cases ($145) in sizes over 15" wide. DepronUSA seems to have gone out of business. The ony other suppliers I can find are in the UK and shipping from there is a killer.

Find anyone in North America willing to sell in smaller quantities. I'd like to know.

what size you looking for rszanti? I should be getting my order on monday from rcfoam via dhl. I got the 40 sheets and some carbon, I went in with a friend of mine and we are splitting up the foam and going to sell 10 sheets of it to recoupe some cash, maybee an idea for you if you got some friends who want to build a bunch-o-fomies!! yeah the shipping sucks either way, thats why we got the big box, figured we'd go all in!

they also have other sizes, but I still think DepronUSA is cheaper.

Hobby People sells CellFoam 88 but I can't find where they sell Depron - do you have a link ? And DepronUSA is out of business (see the message above from exeter_acres).

rszanti, I recieved my depron last week just before the holiday. all the sheets were in great condition and packaged very well. I'll see what it would take to get you out some foam, shcool and work has just kinda caught up with me lately.
