getfpv.com is one of the oldest and largest stores in the US. I have ordered stuff from them once but got it delivered in the US and brought the parts back with me on person. I highly doubt if anyone ordered from there right to their home in India.
Just my two cent!

Hi I made a big mistake of purchasing from getfpv.com without knowing the import duties/taxes. I got a DJI fpv flight controller, this was the cost breakup
-Cost of Controller : $299 (21383)
-DHL express : $40 (Rs 2861)

I was quite ok with this but just before delivery I got a message from DHL asking me to pay  Rs 11,670 ($160) bucks as import tax the import tax consists of the following components
- Import tax (10% of the total shipment value : Rs 2800)
- IGST (28%, yes freaking 28% for electronics : Rs 8200)
- DHL express import chargers (10 % of import tax : Rs 520)

Total Cost : Rs 36-37k for a product which is Rs 21k

I felt so bad for having to pay an additional 11k ($160), I checked with getfpv.com but they do not have any say in this and is mentioned in their website
https://www.getfpv.com/shipping.html -> Make sure you review our Terms and Conditions with important details relating to shipping.

5.6 Customs, Duties, and "Return to Sender" Packages

For orders shipped outside the USA, you are solely responsible for any and all import duties your local customs office may impose on your order. If a package is returned to GetFPV due to the Mail Carrier's inability to collect customs duties or deliver the package to your provided ship-to address, GetFPV will not refund a) shipping costs from GetFPV to your location and b) the cost of returning the package back to GetFPV, when and if the package is returned to GetFPV. In the event that a package can not be delivered due to the issues listed in this paragraph and the overall value of your order is less than the cost of returning the package back to GetFPV, GetFPV may elect to 'abandon' the package. If your package is abandoned, you will not receive a refund.

So If you want to get something, I would suggest you to ask a friend to bring it from the US, again remember it cannot be a ready to fly drone, it can be a dji fpv air unit cause the product alone does not fall under the drone category. Hope this information is usefull

Was this your first time importing something? Duties are applicable on all imports, and its getting expensive day by day. You're lucky this was classified under electronics and not Hobby parts/toys (depends on HS Code used). I ordered a bunch of parts from HK in Jan this year and ended up paying close to 78% in import duty.

Duties aside GetFPV is very much reliable. Had ordered some stuff to a US address and it reached safely and in time.
