On a positive note, looks like the USPS found it and it will be here this week.
Good thought on cheap replacement using just the airframe kit. Considering 918grams packaging weight, shipping itself would be $15 or so...how did you get $20 total? I don't mind flying beater airframe w/o canopy if I can get it for that price. I have enough excess hardware in my goodie box to dress up the rest of the plane.
Must be nice getting 100+ flights on a plane in such short time. It takes me 2 yrs usually to get that much on an airframe
