hello all,

I would like to make an order from rcjapan.com for some hirobo parts.

ok I added 3 parts totaling 3,075 yen.

I did a conversion to us and it came out to $326.97.

is that right ?
I cant believe 3 parts ( evo 90 parts, tail boom,,belt,,canopy mounts)
cost 326.

Yep... looks like your going to pay around 30 bucks in parts, probably another 15 to 20 in shipping. The nice thing is, paypal will do the conversion for you when you check out. Super easy.

The shipping is going to be pricey for just three parts. You might want to consider ordering your next crash kit now

http://www.xe.com will do the conversion and it's very close to what it should be. Be forewarned the Japanese model companies like to charge bank fees as well. So ask questions and make sure that when you place the order that everyone is on the same page when it comes to the shipping cost, the bank fees and the price of the parts.
