I had my cart finished up for order on March 15, 2011. It was for my final year project - Radio Controlled Airplane.
I checked out on the same day. But due to an out of stock LiPo (900 mAh), it could not ship till March 29. It was due to be delivered on April 1 but due to Customs payment, i held it for 3 more days and finally got it delivered on April 4th. So, in all 3-4 days time is very good for FedEx International Priority.

hey,

Could you by any chance share how much you had to pay (maybe in percentage).

I want to buy a simple starter kit, but, seems like if they charge duty fees under 'electronics' then I would have to pay 28%!! That and shipping makes it twice the cost! :'(
