Probably will ship in 3 days like mine did. So it won't come on Monday if you order it Friday (no mail on Sunday).

The plane took two........ priority shipping should take two days. It is likely that you are further than the warehouse than me.

I'm not far from the warehouse, CT to NJ isn't that long... probably about 2-3 hours drive. Who knows, it all depends on USPS and what else they have to deliver that day.

That's what happens when your elevator servo locks up perfectly straight while entering a flat spin 200' up. I tried to KE it down but that thing had alooooottt of coupling. The rudder coupling made it go into an unsaveable stall spin. Smack! Onto asphalt at the edge of the field.
