Windrider's Giant Airliner Kit, Awesome!!
Ming Lou of Winrider just sent me an email saying that their giant Airliner is now ready for shipment. I am thinking maybe (4) Johnson 250 Motors for the electric conversion or maybe even (4) CDROM motors off of (1) large brushless ESC??
P.S. - Maybe (4) GWS 300 EDF55's?
$165 + $60 shipping

2. Pair of wings
3. Tail fins
4. Engine arm and duct
5. Push rod
6. Control horn
7. Colour sticker
8. 1 inch and 3 inch fibre tape
9. Build instruction
10. Rubber band and plastic parts

I also don't think $60 for a 6.5lb package from Hong Kong is unreasonable - I was looking at prices to ship a laptop (just a laptop) from Dell.Com and they wanted nearly $100 for domestic. I was looking at buying a chassis for a rack mount system a couple of days ago and looking at over $30... domestic. $60 for a large 6lb. box from Hong Kong via airmail doesn't seem at all unreasonable.
That said, to answer your question, Ming, $45-80.
From the US Postal Service website.

Thank you very much for your information.
I can let you know that US$60 we charge is not enough to cover what we pay for the shipping, it mean I take some part of our profit to ship the plane.
It happen to all Windrider plane we selling on our website not only this Airliner.
One of example is Ele-Bee, we need to pay around US$35 to ship US but we just charge US$15 to ship US by air.
