Well I got my replacement pack from HeliDirect.com and it too a 6S 5000 45C pack arrived via USPS priority mail. Wonder if volume shippers get some kind of break VS consumer shipping requirements? At any rate for the last 7-8 years I have been getting large lipos from USPS and there has never been an issue, wonder what prompted them to implement these new rules?
Ugly can be fixed stupid is forever!
