OVER SIZE AND DOUBLE BOXED- 49X18X10 BOX SI
New item for 2011. (OVER SIZE SHIPPING AND DOUBLE BOXED) We have the factory double box (or crate) our planes and they do an over-kill which makes the fgt. higher because of box size. But who want a busted plane and try to collect from the fgt. carrier?

email from customer- Robert, I received the Drastik in four days. No damage. Was concerned about the no-name iron on covering, but it seems fine and had far less wrinkles than the Monocote and Ultracote covered Arfs I've done previously. I am especially impressed with the hinging cutouts for the control surfaces. A quick slice with an exacto knife (mostly to locate the slits) and the hinges go in easily yet fairly firmly. Almost finished. If it flies as well as it assembles I'll be very happy with it. Feel free to use this reaction as a review/testimonial if you want.
