Default Foam For Blade Holders?

Where can I get the same type of foam that they use for making the blade holders with?

I took an old Trex 250-sized blade holder and trimmed it down and recut it to make a prototype for my NCPX-500 helicopter.

I wish to get some of the same foam in white and make a better holder for my model. Anybody have any ideas or links to where I can purchase this type of foam? Thanks!

Thanks, I'll have a look! Where on his web site do I look for the material? And would he have a box for it as well? I discovered that the box that the Align Trex 100x came in, fit's my Nano-500 perfectly!

Wow, too much foam to look through. What type do I need to look for? Thanks again!

Try a sporting goods store. Some of the exercise/Yoga mats are of that material.

Hobby Lobby might be a possibility.
