Balsa wood for the frame

Today i went out to my local hobby shop to get the wood i need for the frame. I got this:

It is Balsa wood which is extremely strong and light. It measures (in cm) 100*10*2.

I bought it for around 14$ which is not expensive. I am going to cut it square for the arms with the measurements (in cm) 2*2. I am not quite sure of the length by now. It depends on the length of the wires.

It weighs only 220 grams! It’s remarkably low for wood at that size. So i am looking forward to start building when i get the rest of the electronics in a few days.

Thats all for now. Stay tuned for the next update soon!
