Shipping Ultra-Micros (UM) in the original box

The post office does not accept packages that have any advertising, logos, writing, etc., on them.

Because of this, if you want to ship an Ultra Micro (UM) with the post office, you would normally need a huge outer box to put it in, but this increases the weight and size, which increases the cost.

This method works very well, and is easy to do with just one additional piece of cardboard and some packing tape.

The additional cardboard is important for airplanes which have big flat boxes and no upper piece of protective foam, but could be skipped for helis, which are smaller and have separate top / bottom pieces of foam to protect the bird.

If you are going to skip the additional piece of cardboard, leave the plastic handle inside the box so it doesn't snag and tear during shipping.
