Where to get Lite Ply

Can anyone recommend a place to get 1/8" Lite Ply? I'm building a Quadcopter frame and need some for the base. I live in Halifax, NS.

Re: Where to get Lite Ply

Liteply is nowhere strong enough for a quad frame. Use birch ply if you can.
The best place for Liteply in in Tangerine boxes.
Maritime Hobbies usually has Liteply in stock.

Re: Where to get Lite Ply

Another source of really super-strong plywood is Baltic Birch Ply. This is the same swtuff that they use in making harp frames. I got a small sheet of one-inch BP and it was the equal to aviation plywood but with more layers per inch....


I got mine at Home Depot in the small-cuts section for plywoods.
