Kitty Hawk Mirage 2000D/N out now

Recommended Posts

Similar issues here. The other day the doorbell rang, I dashed upstairs and when I opened the door, he was in the process of writing a note for the door. He says UPS recommends no more than 10 seconds waiting on the porch for the drivers, and I believe that. I've also had packages reported as delivered, that actually show up one or two days later.

Same here....................albeit its been Amazon for me lately, and their drivers do NOT wait 10 seconds.  They take a flash picture of the package delivered on your porch, or wherever they drop it, and they are OUT.............and I mean in a flash.

 

We had some LP hoses and a new large tank adapter delivered yesterday, and I was about 15 feet from the door and saw him drop the package off on the front porch. I immediately went to the door and he had already taken the picture and was about 10 steps from getting back in his truck.

I miss the French nuclear missile for the N version. That is very unfortunate. What is also not in the box are the pilot figures. In recent months you have seen photos on various forums with a pilot figure. So it is not in the box. I personally think this is a miss. Oh well, you must have something to wish for right?

Its my understanding from talking to our local FedEx driver, that they and UPS only ring the door bell or interact with the recipient if a signature is required. Otherwise they simply drop it and go, it saves them time and time is money to them. In my case, that has sometime meant at my front door, at the end of the sidewalk near my garage, or in one extreme and snowy case, in a bag hanging on a fence post near the road. Also, our guys have a bad habit of leaving boxes on top of the communal row of mailboxes where everyone actually gets their letter mail. This isn't in town or in a secured location or anything, but a row of about 20 mailboxes along a side country road that anyone in the area, or just driving by, has access to. The joys of living in the country...

According to HK Post tracking, my Mirage 2000C has left HK after a fourteen day wait, at least it's going to be delivered by Royal Mail.

Seems the issues with delivery guys are the same all around the globe.

I try as much as I can to have the package delivered into a pickup location (local post office, shop, amazon locker, etc).
