I just ran the fedex website to get a quote.


FedEx International Economyģ 100.23

WTF? I said "electronic equipment", "fedex box", 1lb, $100 value.

Is the box too big?

Did you buy from ReadyHeli? If so, just send to them and they will forward to Germany.

if you think that is high go see what "Brown" charges. for me shipping form SC to K is was gonna be $175

Fed Ex I think will end up being a better option, I have heard people being able to send for around $75

I cross the line when I ship mine back I used UPS and it was $28 to get it shipped. That was two dead jives and a pyro 700 you really have to get the right custom tarrif codes in I used 95030075. There will be zero duty as for insured value I put 20 euros. My total shipping cost was under $70 with return shipping.

I've used USPS Priority Mail International Small Flat Rate Box. $17. Can't beat that. And they got it there in 7 business days.

The important thing to remember is to write something like "Back to manufacturer for repair" on the customs slip.

Did you send it registered or another way? The reason I ask is that when I used USPS I had to send registered and it took almost 60 days.
