Very true...  Cry . Chennai, Bangalore even Delhi customs are clearing stuff regular, but not Mumbai!! WAITLIST OF 2 MONTHS!!!!!!! Bang Head

Hi,

I dont think so... actually the mumbai customs are not holding RC stuff specifically. I did not see any issues regarding RC stuff in particular. They are surely clearing the parcels with RC commodities. The only problem is that there is a huge backlog and the number of custom inspectors are only handful (I saw only 4). It takes about 8-10 mins to clear one parcel depending upon the content (as they refer to their big old "customs book" for rates and restricted contents.)

They certainly know about the RC stuff and the items. They did not even say "Not allowed" or "restricted item". They know these items are being imported and they are fine with it till we are ready to pay custom duties (14.712% currently as per the custom's book)

Since the number of officers doing this job is less, there are more number of parcels arriving each day which is causing this delay. Add to it their casual attitude and late coming and early goings along with customers who come for clearing parcels everyday.

No, I heard R/C specific curb in Mumbai and difficulties of Mumbai LHS, from old timers and LHS people in Bangalore. Looking for field report from Mumbai LHS who bulk order.

Wish AMAI takes this issues Suo Moto and bring one of first goodness to the R/C fraternity.

Its one of the best cases scenario, and 1-2 times even I have blessed.

Hobby King has improved its dispatch from 4-5 days to 48 hours. HK post still lags for 4 days. Once the package leaves HK (as seen from HK Post tracking page), it reaches India the next day and clears port customs in another  1-2 days. So 2+4+1+2 = 9 is one of the best case scenario if it not held by local (FPO) customs at all. In your case both HC and HK post took less time, and most probably FPO bypassed it. Hope this becomes norm than exception.

Thats where Mumbaities take a beating.. I think like what Saurabh pointed there is a huge backlog of parcels in all and clearing them is slow! so obviously even RC parts imported via Mumbai get stuck in queue!! other custom offices dont seem to have much delay..
I dont have much experience in this but maybe Sujju/Gaurav/sandeep et.al. know the situation better!!

My work horse 500g package. Contained a Mini Turnigy cam (19g which Subbu got), Hex Socket drivers, 12A ESC, 2x 360mAh Lipos, 6+1 props,  ESC prog card and few fillers. 500g and 750g Registered Airmail are the best price:weight:risk(custom) ratios... stick to them...on  750g parcel, shipping comes close to Rs 1/g. (Vinay's formula  Tongue ) so you can calculate the price overhead and consider LHS more realistically while ordering item Cheesy

My HobbyKing shipment is now officially lost. Nonetheless, I want to thank you all for the help/info. (ph #, website address, etc) of the customs and speed post office.

I filled a claim with Paypal 3 weeks ago, and thankfully today they made a decision in my favor... As such, they are going to refund my $152 !  Never ordering from overseas anymore...  Angry

Dont get disheartened ! we have around 60+ parcels between Vinay and me and only 4-5 parcels (small envelops - all e-bay/DealXtreme sellers) got lost and the sellers promptly re-sent the items.
None of our HC packaet has lost till date. I guess barring the long holdup at FPO, shipment from Hong Kong/China/US is no more risky than our Local courier shipping from Delhi to , say , Mumbai.

good thing is that you got you money back. Dont know how many Indian sellers (I dont mean R/C LHS) on E-bay would do this generous thing ?

test the waters, you are first time unlucky!

You were  absolutely DAMN lucky!! I mean you must have balls to do it the ongoing scenario ! Man o Man! how big was the packet ? Its strange how they let go a big packet!
Please dont take such (sweet) incidents for granted in highly sensitive places like Delhi and Mumbai where the FPO scene is very hot.

It seems to be shipped from China, and the only tracking links they have is for EMS items.  This items does not seem to be EMS (no results on the China Post EMS tracking service).

Wonder whether the tracking codes that end in "CH" are for China (should it be "CN") or Swiss ?
