My name is Lana and I'm the General Manager at Draganfly Innovations. This post was brought to my co-worker's attention just now through the kindness of a gentleman who was inquiring about the shipping price.

I can understand the frustration with the shipping price on the SX3. Please let me provide some insight into why it's so expensive:

1. The plane comes fully assembled and even though it is extremely lightweight, the box is very large and therefore, gets "cubed out" for shipping purposes (this is done by all shipping carriers in North America). The box really weighs 7 lbs but with the dimensional weight calculation caused by the size, the shipping carriers see it as a 94 lb shipment.

2. The box is larger than what our regular postal carrier, Canada Post, will accept so our only option is to ship by a ground courier (UPS, Fedex, etc.).

Unfortunately, these are really great planes but they're nearly impossible to sell (other than locally) because of the shipping cost. Selling them for $10 each is kind of like our last-ditch effort to get them moving (we purchased these from the manufacturer for nearly 8 times as much).

In the past, we have been able to use STC (Saskatchewan Transportation Company) to bus them to towns and cities that are in our own and neighboring provinces for around $15 - $20 but we really don't have a great solution for getting them to the rest of Canada and the US. Any suggestions would be appreciated! If you have any questions for me you can reach me directly at 1-800-979-9794 ext 6113 (or +1-306-955-9907) or by email at lana.moldenhauer@draganfly.com.
What about Greyhound? They're pretty reasonable.

I just received the ESC I ordered from them, Saturday delivery is pretty nice for the $6 I paid in shipping!

Sounds like they are a real good company to deal with...just have to figure out some shipping options for the bigger stuff.
