Future Shop ships small stuff in huge boxes, previously by courier now by Canada Post. Even $5 items/free shipping
You get the $5 item and a shipping box to use when you ship something.

Anyway the point is they are paying a cheap parcel rate I am sure with a maximum size and they get the boxes in volume very reasonably.

To set the record straight - I was wrong regarding the availability of Jeti speed controllers in Canada I recently learned that Great Hobbies carries the full line of Jeti speed controllers, including AXI motors and accessories. When I typed "Jeti" into the Great Hobbies search engine, only four products were displayed, none of which were speed controllers. I therefore assumed that Great Hobbies didn't carry the product Had I researched the site further, I would have come across a Hobby Lobby products catagory, under which the Jeti and AXI are listed. Apologies for the misinformation.

hello fellas,

I sometimes order from acrross the pond! and find the boxes to be a bit on the big side! as well! But when your putting togather some of the bigger planes you have no choice! (EXAMPLE) I needed 1 1/2 " servo arms i went with the SWB arms from chiefaircraft! the box they came in was about 20 times bigger! Who knows maybe it fell into that catagory again! Then if you go through UPS for delivery Keep your reciept because after mths of paying it they still send you bills! They go away after awhile but till then it's better to keep them! Anyways i feel your pain! i wish it wasn't such a hassle to get the stuff you can't find here in Canada from the U.S!!

There's a distributor for duralites in Calgay now!
Things are looking up!

cheers mannyh
