Any creative way to ship two to reduce shipping cost? I wonder.

Heli Pad and I are thinking about it.

Hi MO,
Thanks for the great X4 deals Interesting Hubsan X4 QC issues. They must be spitting these out by the thousands everyday If you can do Parcel Post as the cheapest(squeek) to Texas and shave the cost that way, then I'm in for a CA special too ...or should I wait for another price drop? Any "buy two specials" being planned?
Cheers,
Jim

I guess it's time to sell another project and jump on the x4 wagon.

Before I sell the project, I've got a really nice stick I found in the backyard that I'll sell for $44.95 for anyone interested. Local pick up only, or buyer pays actual shipping cost.

Thanks for the kind words guys and nice to be back!
Actually I've been busy with the arrival of a new member in the family.
Well.... not a new baby nor a pet but someone who arrived exactly at the exact moment I noticed an unexplained increase of my overdraft at the bank!!
Go figure....

Here she is, making acquaintance with my Hubsan X4....

Actually we do, but matching up forum nicknames to real names is like

Guys, I've done some calculations and now I clearly remember why we don't even offer Parcel Post..........it's not cheaper. I remember doing these calculations before and either priority using our box, or priority medium flat rate is the most cost effective route, especially to the West Coast or even Midwest........no Georgia, that may be a different story.

I just shipped 2 X4's to Stonecutter\HeliPad for $10.85 priority. I had to do away with the retail boxes as two of them won't fit in a medium flat rate box.

I forgot to add: All we have is priority boxes as they cover all combinations of 1 quad and up. To do parcel post we would have to purchase boxes, which would offset the cost of shipping Parcel in the first place. We did purchase boxes specifically for the quads themselves, which many of you have already received..........we pass that cost on as shipping, but it's still up 5 bucks cheaper than flat rate.

MO, I just placed an order for the SG Special plus more motors. I want to get a better price on shipping too. Slow truck to Dallas is just fine with me, I have others to crash while I wait.

Would you believe it's $.42 more expensive to ship it Parcel than it is Priority?

First Class is only $3.28






but there's no way to get the weight under 13 ounces

Any new links for spare X4 motors (USA) are a reasonable price? Damn, some folks seem to be asking almost as much as the whole quad for the motors...
