There Are already enough threads on RCI that would answer all the questions. And regarding product reviews, its already at HobbyKing!


Its a nice initiative, but its better that a thread be specific to an issue, rather than merging all topics in once as it might get confusing.


Hi Vinay! Heard about your Non EMS Parcel, you got that easily without paying Customs.
Can you Share your experience of Registered Air Mail with me....

Its nothing rocket science, you just buy in small chunks rather than making a huge order that attracts customs. THats all. No secret there.  Wink Of course u need to order a couple of time and slowly increase parcel size once you know how the customs in your city behaves.

With regular (non EMS) Air Post Parcels, it is often a matter of luck. Small packets will, usually, come through without a problem. BUT if it is detained for any reason, the delay can be painful. Also there is no means of tracking so a personal follow up becomes the only answer.

In short it is a hit or miss affair.

Sushil is right that non EMS Air Parcel/Mail would get customs attention at random and may or may not attract customs. If they dont open, the parcel would get to you faster, so win win for you.

Customs hardly spare EMS parcel considering that choosing EMS by the sender should have some thing do with the 'Value' of the item. They are ruthless there.

After so many of packages between Vinay and me and Registered Air Mail/Parcels have always worked for us. EMS may save you from hassle of visiting Customs most of the  times, but you end up paying Customs all the time. May be good for larger packages, not for smaller ones.

Sumeet, I'll go with Ujjawaana and Vinay on this, I have so far not had any problems with Customs for any parcels from Hobby King or from other eBay vendors based out of Hong Kong.

There are few pointers you should keep in mind for future purchase:

- Buy things in small portions / parts, it will help you keep everything in control.
- Whatever the item is, don't declare 100% value on the invoice.
- Be patient before you jump into Customs and take steps, It takes around 15 - 20 days depending on your location for the shipment to reach you after its dispatched from Hong Kong to India. At times people have received things after 30 - 45 days.
- This period from Nov 1 to Nov 15 is crucial as the gov. officials will be enjoying their Diwali vacations, so Dont expect anything to be shipped to you during this time.

 Thumbs Up RCINDIA Family is always there to help you, I have got help and assistance from everyone here at all levels, they have even gone out of their way to help me.

I order a lipo,battery balancer & AXN Floater jet from Hobbyking. it is still in bk. Have asked the hk people to attach a invoice sheet outside the parcel

1. since the packet size is large will it get detained by customs (thats why i have asked hk to attach the invoice sheet outside the parcel or is it a bad idea, should i ask them to remove it)?

2. It has a Lipo battery & a battery balancer will the lipo be a problem?

3. 92 $ package value + 40$ shipment(3500-2999 gms pack)(total - 131$). . Wll i have any customs duty implied it?

since i have time to cancel it, i will use the suggestions given to carry on.

Thanks in advance.

A large package would definitely (99.99%) attract customs. The other 0.01% times people are lucky.

HK by default will provide the customs invoice attached to the package. Its definitely good to have this.
Otherwise you have to furnish the invoice and the mode of payment to customs dept only after which they will release the package.
I guess you do not want to do the running around.

I have got a Cessna from HK without any issues (paid the customs duty thou; at the local post office).

Lipo charge will be in 'storage'. Also not connect to any device. So it should not be of any issue.

Guys, I got in touch with some import agents from mumbai, though still just at initial stage, they can facilitate importing huge parts and also the jumbo sized airplanes from hong-kong, if I think they are good enough, I'll pass-on the information.

You can do this too, here is how:

- Find the contact numbers of "IMPORT AGENTS" from internet, yellow-pages etc., or get in touch with a local travel agency they will refer you some...., how it works is that they use their import license to have the parts / kit delivered to you and they pay the duties involved.
- Make sure you negotiate well with them.
- Make sure the agent is experienced, check their portfolio etc.
- Make sure the agent is insured.
- Preferably get someone from Delhi, Mumbai or Chennai.

Based on my experience with such folks (or even well known courier/shipping companies), I would say be very cautious about this.  They will help move the papers etc while dealing with customs, but if some serious objection is raised, they will wash their hands off and pass the responsibility to the customer. Usually they use their familiarity with people and get things done in a "I scratch your back, you scratch mine" kind of way, but if anything goes wrong beyond that, you will be on your own !

I brought this kit from hk today using debit card of icici(no problem it changed to processing state). Its hk 450 v2 helicopter. thought of buying hk 450 pro  but read reviews that the pro is having problem of squash plate wobbling. so choose hk 450 v2.

They are all the same.  I am not sure about exact reasons, but initially it was United Hobbies, then HobbyCity and now HobbyKing.
