Because UPS wants 100$ to ship a box this size. It is in the original box which is not shippable by itself. Before I can ship it, it needs to be put inside a larger corrigated cardboard box because the factory box is single layer, weak and flimzy. UPS would distroy the box it is in if I used it by itself.
If you are interested in the plane shipped for $269 then I will go hunt down a bunch of cardboard and get started.
The ARF is still a nice plane at this price.
