I,ve got a couple of questions for you, if you don't mind.
Where did you order the plane from and was it double boxed, ply inner liner etc. for security?
The plane likely shipped from Thunder Power RC in Las Vegas, they are the US importer and exclusive distributor for Sebart in North America. They plane comes double boxed, a glossy inner box with an outer plain brown box, the plane is securely held in-place with dividers and smaller boxes cut to fit around the vertical fin and firewall, it's well boxed and can even take some compression on the side which is VERY common when shipping. Overall the design of the packaging is pretty much standard for models now, with everything in plastic bags and taped into position to minimize rubbing (and leave air around the edges for inevitable dents to the box). Thunder Power stands behind their products, I wouldn't worry too much about shipping damage ;-)
