Anyone buy a plane from Extreme within the last year or so? If so, did you have to pay duty on it?

Thanks!

Re: ExtremeFlightRC

There is no duty on hobby products, may or may not have to pay the taxes, depends on your luck with customs.
Use the mail only, if you use a courier you will get nailed heavy with extra charges.

Re: ExtremeFlightRC

Also, don't forget that Great Hobbies have just started to carry Extreme Flight airplanes. I don't know how long it will be before they have any in stock, but that would certainly be a good option.

I have ordered a 60 inch electric from them in the past, and as mentioned above, have it shipped via US Postal Service (USPS), which will hand over to Canada Post. Canada Post will charge you the HST and $10 to collect the HST at delivery, but no other brokerage fees, like some of the carriers do.

If it is a giant scale, it may be cheaper to have it shipped to a US commercial address. If you pick it up across the border, you will pay the HST at Canada Customs.

Re: ExtremeFlightRC

There is also a Canadian dealer who advertises threw here to support us. Maybe try him.
Pro-RC.ca.Try him first, excellent service , great pricing, "free" shipping on most items, over sized boxes extra" makes sense". Bought a few nice planes there myself.

Re: ExtremeFlightRC

True, I forgot to mention ProRC. Looking at his prices and fixed shipping rates for various size planes, ordering from him now would be an excellent option.
