Talking Re: Canadian Customs Bummers

I've been ordering stuff from Hobby King aka Hobby City since 2008. My orders have been from $50.00 to $400.00.
I've never had a problem from Hobby King, Canada Customs, or Canada Post.

There must be reason for these exceptions.
Why are some people getting burnt and not others?

Better to get it in the mail and pay the 8.50 plus taxes than UPS and their outrageous handling fees.

Re: Canadian Customs Bummers

Just received my 31st order from Hobby King. It was posted in Hong Kong on the 18th, today is the 27th. Nine days in transit, I consider that pretty good. It was opened and resealed by Canada Customs. That is the first package of mine they have 'tampered' with so far.
