A little while ago, I sent LjCraft12 a clutch for his heli to help him get in the air a little sooner since he wasn't able to find one anywhere else. Ended up taking him a month and a bit to get it. By that time he'd already found another on his own! Foiled by the mail system again!

On the other hand I ordered a vbar from rcflightstore (Canadian company - so not even cross border) a few weeks ago (about 3 now I think). It got returned to sender (supposedly sent to the wrong address) and now it's lost in limbo somewhere. Ken's been great to deal with regardless of Canada post's general suckage. All that just to say could just be CP that's causing the holdup. Ya never know.

Just be happy you didn't get it sent via UPS. Half the time you pay more for their ridiculous brokerage fees than the item cost in the first place! If you know what's good for you, don't ever get anything sent across the border via UPS!

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

I bought a motor from a guy in Canada and it sat in customs in America for 3 weeks. Took 2 days to get from Canada to America, but customs must have used it for a paper weight.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

I had two cases in a row, when package was returned to sender, being delivered to Canada. First time - reshipped again and it is OK. Another one from HD. It travels more then two months already and looks like it showed up at HD again. They are resending. At least that was their word.

Usual time - 2 -3 weeks.
