i had ordered but firstly mine was around $110 your is lot more.
also tower hobbies orders are huge in size.
customs is charged for sure and it will take around 40 days for it to reach.
secondly yours is tx rx whereas mine was car parts,so no in depth idea about txrx.
if you want my number pm me.

I don't think your order will be detained by customs. Duty may be around 20-28% depending on under what category customs sees this item.

Ups is good customs will be applied cause its above 400$ even if u ask tower hobbies to reduce rate in invoice uvstill have to pay customs  ....ups is safe nand if using saver plan it will reach in 7 days or else 4 days for sure and ups has its own custom check so they are not that harsh ....when u finalize ur order in comment ask towerhobbies  to reduce rate in invoice to 220 240$ u may still have to pay customs but it wont be that much ....but safty wise ups is great ...suggest dx8 more user friendly  than futaba ...

i got my rc nitro car from amainhobbies through ups.....it took 6 days ....customs was 28% +rs500 clearance charges.....they will never detain your parcel....ups guys will clear it for you....i spoke with them when i received my parcel....they said they only show the invoices to customs officials and pay the duty through a demand draft.... and they get the money from us while delivering....it is much safer than usps...trust me.....the extra money is worth especially if you are ordering a tx/rx or something which is hard to get through post

If the tracking number starts with E, C or R then you can track here

It normally takes 3 weeks from US from the date of dispatch via unregistered mail

Hmm ok - what exactly is the issue? Do they get a letter from customs stating that it is illegal?

 Giggle When they didnt get anything for long and then they check status; then they found their radio lying with customs, then they call on phone to check with customs, where they are adviced to make a visit  Bang Head.

When you go there...... Bow!!! rest we all know  Tongue.

Yes, you are right, once we personally go there - its a different story  >Cheesy

I was also once asked to visit, I instead send them a latter with payment proof. Within 2-3days of receiving letter, they released the radio with 30% duty  Bang Head

So best thing is not to do anything and wait for 3-4 weeks, they will get bored and release it.

no guarantee about customs - if it is small parcel (say 750gms or less) chances are it will be duty free.

No need to go anywhere to collect parcel - The postman in your area will deliver it to you and collect the duty (if applicable)

Dude, go ahead, like others have mentioned, if you are getting this shipped by UPS where you pay lot more for shipping, the advantage is that your Tx + Rx will come through the customs without much or any hassles.

And yes, it will come in pretty fast, not 40 days. Infact even USPS will not take 40 days for sure.

About under invoicing, Tower Hobbies will never under invoice. So its waste of time but still if you want you can try. Let us know if that do under invoice....

On the other hand if you can do with a Futaba 6EX (6 channel) 2.4 GHz Tx + Rx, then PM me as I have fresh box packed stock readily available.

But if you want 8FG Super for Air only and you cannot or do not want to use Futaba 6EX, then go ahead and order it but use UPS only as shipping for sure else your parcel will be detained at customs if shipped through USPS and practically you will have to bribe or get a lot of paper work done to get the Radio released.
