I chose EMS
The shipping is a little pricey, and that's why I ordered multiple models - Peak stuffed all the planes in a single Binary-III box, which really helped get my money's worth out of the shipping. I figured I could easily sell the B900 locally if I never got around to building it... As promised, I had my box in about a week. I think USPS express mail took over the shipment after it cleared customs (I think that's right - I don't 100% remember what uniform the guy was wearing when he came to my door... but it was a standard domestic delivery service.)
