Hi,

Will be ordering few parts from USA. They are providing only USPS priority mail or express mail.

What are your experiences with the Indian mail n customs once such packages reach Indiale? Is tracking available once in India and how much time does it takes to reach our doorstep?

USPS Will Become EMS When it reaches India..
SO you can track through EMS tracking..
EMS Is a Good option But About Customs, Based upon your luck..
I have got a parcel from us through usps Reached me in 9days afetr shipping with some customs..

even priority mail is excellent but ask the seller to give you the tracking number.  It is like registore mail in India.  Have used both with ebay.com and found then both to be good.  Express is 3-4 days but costly about 50% more than priority.  Priority takes about 15 days.

Well I been into aeromodelling since I was in School....  had won the "WINGS Open" at "Bombay" (as it was known then) in 1985 for control line aerobatics (was doing my graduation at that time) and had received a big gold trophy....  Mr Bhivandiwala organised it and gave good awards.
Our team had won the following medals:-
1.   Gold for Control Line Aerobatics
2.   Silver and Bronze for Control line speed
3.   Bronze for Free Flight Glider
Sharma Models helped us train to win the medals

Does it mean it cleared customs
Can someone tell when can I expect my box

usps charges atleast
priority = 40usd
priority mail express = 50 usd

and
yes every parcel WILL BE INSPECTED AND ATLEAST INR 1000 CUSTOMS DUTY WILL BE CHARGED.

also
i would suggest you NOT TO BUY  with first class shipping , it will NOT ARRIVE, (india post will steal it ).

- based upon my experiences

BE INFORMED !!!

seeing the antenna itself, customs will most likely ask for some licence or permission from wpc (http://www.wpc.dot.gov.in/)

if you are lucky one , you get receipt also , but the post office system of india as i per my experience is very 'kanjoos' and will tell you only amount of customs duty. and take money from you.
