US$30 shipping cost = HK$234
This is not enough to cover the shipping cost we pay to ship all counties.
Windrider always charge very cheap flat rate shipping to ship worldwide.

IMO Windrider's shipping costs have always been very good.

I think two reasons make you feel shipping is high:
1. This plane too cheap make your feel shipping too high.
2. Windrider always benefit the shippping cost to buyer, example is we charge US$20 to ship Bee2, in fact we pay US$30 to US$40 to ship 90% of country.

I don't think the eagles are attacking it, they're trying to buy her a drink!

Hi Ming, I still have and love my Windrider Fox! Actually,your asking price of this little wing is not cheap at all, in fact it's a bit expensive, to compare, we used to buy the excellent 36" 1-piece molded EPP Sport Flyer Wild Wing from Hobby People for $20-$30 USD routinely, Perhaps you can offer a special introductory price for RC Groups members?

Keep going to benefit the shippping cost to buyer, just reduce the shipping from US$30 to US$25, please note that Windrider never make profit on shipping cost.

Have you ever looked how much it costs to send a kit from the US to an overseas destination? It's very expensive, and can be the make or break when it comes to ordering from the US. Makes Ming's freight seem very fair.I'm not having a dig, just making an observation.

Ming, can this plane be hand-launched/side-armed launch for thermalling on flat land?
