so the custom people already know the cost of the items in it

They calculate the tax arbitrarily most of the times. Moreover, as customs declarations are undervalued in most cases, so they dont calculate duty based on that value. So you'll have to provide them with invoice and proof of payment.

Hi rajgorasia. Those were my first posts when I dived into this hobby  Giggle

42% is normal for customs duty. Actually customs duty is 12%. But there are some other duties like Countervailing duty, Education Cess etc which add upto 42% actual duty.

Check my post here:

I gave a detailed description on calculating customs duty. Hope it helps...  Thumbs Up

First of all, plz dont call me SIR. Nairit or Nairit ji or Nairit bhaiya is fine.  Thumbs Up

They open our package to see whats inside. This is what is done in EMS & Air Parcel packages. Regarding "messing" with our stuff, I can just tell you that a small percentage of packages do sometimes have items which were originally not ordered by the buyer. Like a "Customs Manual" instead of the "Radio Tx" ordered, "few pieces of stones" instead of "the set of stepper motors" ordered by a buyer and so on.  Bang Head But if you buy from trusted websites like ebay, alibaba, banggood etc they generally refund your money in such cases.

Its better not to contact customs on your own.

To be on the safe side, I suggest you make a video when you open your parcel after receiving it from post office. It helps when claiming refund from seller. I always do that.

Coincidentally I am right now setting up my FPV unit for my plane right now. This was my first thread in RCI asking about my first plane & FPV set up. Many people very rightly told me not to dive into fpv at the beginning. Been a long time. Learnt so much here. RCI rocks !!!

Have sent them all the documents. But they have stuck with that WPC NOC thing...
What to do yaar. And i have found a "Gazette of India" which states that there is no requirement of any license for use of any gadgets with 2.4 or 5.8 gigs operating freq.
