DLG builders have very similar problems. Fragile 1.5m composite structures are never easy to ship. Tom Siler (Tom43004) has had very good luck as far as shipping goes, once figuring out "the secret." I don't know what that secret is, though.

I have heard of people "squishing" large diameter PVC pipe to ship in, as well. This could be sent back and forth, with the purchaser pre-paying for shipping the tube back to help ensure you actually do get it back.

FWIW, it might be worth the while to poke around the composites forum, or even a few of the sailplane forums to see if anyone is willing to go in a roll of fabric, or has a bunch they may be willing to part with at a cost less than the distributors charge.
