I’m shipping a package just now. It contains a Slow Stick Wing, 4 each Hitec HS-50 servos and 2 each 8×6 folding prop/spinner combos. The box weighs in at 2 pounds, 8 ounces. It measures 26″ x 15″ x 7″. Product value $87.50. What do you suppose the US Post Office wants to move this package from Dayton Ohio to Reno Nevada?
Priority Mail 3 Days $48.15
Express Mail (overnight) $45.15
Standard Post 6 Day $12.77
United Parcel Service (UPS): Ground Service $12.77
Notice that Overnight Express Mail is cheaper than Priority Mail. Strange.
Who owns the post office? You do!
