This post is a slightly edited version of the one I sent to someone asking about shipping to California. This would be for shipping from zip code 07726, if you want to do your own calculations:
The wing is 53" long and the widest point on the fuselage is at the V-tail comes in at 14". For packing, the minimum I like to allow for is 1" all around, and of course I would prefer much more. Once the landing gear is removed, that would make for a package 55x16x12 and I'm guessing around 10 lbs, although from my experience it could be an additional 10 lbs without affecting the shipping cost (dimension weight). The cost to ship this to California would be $108.23! Changing this to a package 55x15x11 brings the cost down to $57.32, still pretty high and I am sure more than anyone would want to spend for shipping.
