Default Whiplash shipping

I sold the Whiplash last week. And it did not have its original box.

This is what I did.....

Obtain a bicycle box and cut it down to required size & tape up any holes.
Place a block of foam in the bottom center for the nose of the whip to rest.
Put the fin, hardware and fuel tank in a suitable box and tape it into a corner.
Cover the wings of the Whiplash with cardboard .
Use foam pipe insulation to protect leading trailing edges and wing tips.
Tape foam to cardboard.
Fit a block of foam between the motor mount rails.
Place the whiplash into the box.
Cut and fit a block of foam to center the trailing edge in the box.
Back fill shipping box with foam peanuts.
Carefully load the box into your truck and take it to Fed-Ex.

Hats off to you Bob for the effort made in packing and shipping this item.
I am the buyer of the Whiplash and I can tell you that it was packaged better than the one I bought from the manufacturer.
Bought this one for a spare since they are not available anymore.
Again Thank you Bob.
