Yikes. Still an easy fix but that’s not good. Was there no glue on the horizontal stabilizer?

Blame the postal service, not the manufacturer. If you're not happy, I'm sure your dealer would gladly take them back, as others are anxiously trying to get those models!!

Yeah, I just received a long awaited IF200 in the mail the other day and both horizontal stabs detached, but luckily wedged in the Styrofoam insert so they didn't rattle around scratching paint and top antenna snapped off. Not the sellers fault as I saw pics of what I was buying prior to shipping, but the good ole thugs at USPS must have been inspired by football season! Box must have been thrown so hard the Styrofoam insert was broken up behind the wings and tail. Luckily no paint was pulled beyond the mounting footprint. Also nice to have spare antenna to make necessary repairs.

Is it just the angle and lighting or is the paint on the port wing of the UPS screwed up?
