    I think Art Friend @ Bras Basah may have some (those with rubber bands)... as they sell balsa wood supplies.

    Been ages since I've been to Sembawang Shopping Centre but they used to have at least 2 stores that sold RC stuff (planes/cars/boats).

    You may want to google for the place and see if they are still there.
