They are kinda weird that way. Everyone else has theirs online. I'm working on a Top Flite P40 right now that came with a fairly messed up manual. (some Inner pages missing, some upside down??) Never had to complain about it, just downloaded the PDF.

Still thinking hard about buying one of those Pups, and it'd sure be nice to preview the manual.

Yeah! You are preaching at the choir. $6.30 for a paper copy of the manual is kinda cheap. But $11 for shipping is a little outrageous.

All of HobbyCo's subsidiaries carry PDF copies of their manuals free online. Even SIG lets you preview their manuals in 2 (count 'em) 2 formats both PDF and HTML.

I don't see why BalsaUSA can't give us a break.

Maybe you could call them and do a little groveling and pleading?

It seems the BUSA website has a small glitch. NO CHARGE for shipping on their manuals.

I ordered one today.

thanks
