Put in in my cart, went to checkout and saw $46.47 for shipping! Needless to say, this plane won't be purchased anytime soon
I don't have first hand knowledge of NP's rate scale but I would say absolutely not. Large scale shippers like NP get much better rates than we spare individuals. I asked if the shipping fee is based on the total order amount or on weight and did not get an answer. UPS does charge more for oversize boxes regardless of weight but the plane I ordered is only 35" span. IMHO they are low balling the price and making it up on the shipping. It might be time to start shopping at the LHS again. We need those guys to stay in business too.
