Got Them

Ok so my wife calls and says I have a Parcel at the post office with $18. and change owing. I get home and here is a box that is 12x9x5 inches . Tower hobbies hm what else did they send me. I had ordered a TX module smaller than a package of cigarettes . Cost me $20. to ship nearly $20 in taxes(I am sure if it was a smaller package it would have slipped thru.
Oh well its here and so is my 64K of memory . Now I can start adding my planes and helis . Hope it all goes well.
To a tree, balsa wood and MonoKote taste just like chicken!

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

Pee on it and walk away.

Re: Got Them

some of those companies like to use boxes way bigger then needed, couple of years back I ordered 2 receiver crystals from Horizon, came in a box that was about 12" square with a few of those foam noodles in it... cost me an extra 20 bucks when I got it... I wasn't too happy..

Re: Got Them

It's funny how Canada Post hit and miss with parcels. I have ordered RC monster truck kits which are big from Tower Hobbies or Ebay and sometimes gets pass through customs without getting dinged with taxes. There are times I just have a bubble wrapped electronics (which costs more than $100US) and I have to pay the amount due.

I got lucky with my recent Align 3G flybarless covertion kit purchase from ebay. It passed through customs without problems. It was just packaged in a cardboard envelope designed for Taiwan's EMS shipping.
