Hey Everyone!

After the recent changes in laws regarding RC in India, Local Hobby Shops have been stocking less RC stuff. Also, it's cheaper to buy from foreign online stores like Banggood, HobbyKing, AliExpress etc.

The problem with those websites is it takes a long time to ship and not everyone has a PayPal account. I've been ordering RC stuff for myself from the above mentioned websites almost weekly for the past 6 months and have never had any problems regarding shipping, customs or product quality.

I'm starting this thread so people who don't have international cards (or PayPal) can post requests here and people who frequently order stuff from there can add the requested products to their order.

There are many advantages to this:

1) Locally unavailable products can be bought at a low cost.
2) Lower shipping cost due to combined orders.
3) More points per purchase.

I order stuff from foreign websites every 1-2 weeks. Feel free to post your requests so I (or some other members) can get your RC stuff.

I can also get robotics stuff from US stores (like robotshop, sparkfun etc).

Even better: combine multiple orders, involve a freight forwarding company, and get stuff airfreighted! Will take less time, be cheaper shipping, and can get Lipos, Models, maybe Radios. Yes, Customs Duty applicable

My last order was for 24.15 dollars and the amount deducted from my paypal connected account was  Indian Rupees 1680.02.

That's  Indian Rupees 69.566 per dollar (I don't know if any taxes were included because that's not the current exchange rate).

So, it would cost you (69.566x19.99) =  Indian Rupees 1391 (excluding shipping)

Should we wait for other people to post requests for HK products so shipping can be divided?

Well its dissapointing that rc stores in india don't have enough batteries combination or good batteries like graphene and are also become very expensive especially high cell voltage batteries.

More then the ban of RC flying in cities, the lack of cheap batteries and HK refusal to ship it to india for some 4 years now has made RC surface and air loose interest in our country.

For plane flyers and large multirotors one could even assemble batteries using 18650 or 20700.
Other uses include flashlights,diy power banks, Electric vehicles,laptop,power tools etc.

I'll be ordering stuff worth $100 from HobbyKing and $50 from banggood for a friend by the end of next week (29th April). If anyone needs anything from those stores, please let me know before then.

Lipos are excellent.... But if u don't want a lot of power at once ( as in a quad) ..consider. Buying 18650 batteries and making your own custom battery...
Its cheaper and has almost twice the capacity of a lipo...
Can be used only for airplanes though...and not small airplanes..
Excellent initiative swapnil.
I was wondering why some lhs didn't have batteries.
Bangood has some amazing stuff ..💪

@ Imperial fire
I hope 18650 batteries with higher C ratings become available soon.

Anyway, if you'd like to add a product to my list (BG or HK) or create your own list, please feel free to post it here.  Smiley

Great initiative Swapnil sir. If we can get LiPo batteries, please add 4 x 4s 1500mAh 90C Infinity graphene from Banggood for me.
