It is just a loading on the price. I just don't like that way of doing business.
I think you will find that that is pretty much the actual EMS cost to ship it to you from hong Kong to Oz. I do not see any price loading in this case.
Like the other poster said, actual weight means little....it is package volume that drives things these days.
I order from HC from time to time and am amazed at how fast it gets here to me in Texas.
My last order for a bunch of lipos and some servos and other parts cost me about 10% of the order for EMS service. I ordered on a Thursday evening, it shipped on Friday and arrived from half way around the world on Monday.
