I can't imagine it making it across country. There's no protection between the cardboard exterior and the wing and fuselage. Any pressure on the box exterior will damage one or both.
I jus emailed NP and expect to return it...
I sent it back at my expense, Nitro immediatly shipped another. This one was delivered with the wing tip broken over and the flap hinges jammed with torn out hinge holes. I decided to keep it and fix/ build it.
NitroP handled it quickly, but also promised to check/re-pack the second plane. That didn't happen. I received this kit packed exactly like the first with wing damage again.
My friend, received his with a large hole in the top of the box. The plane was amazingly undamaged. Luck of the draw!
