For my order (Binary-III + 2x Binary-900 in a single box), I had two choices: "EMS" (a Chinese world-wide express shipping company) for US$58, and "SAL" (don't know the company) for US$39. EMS takes 3-5 working days, SAL takes 20-30 days (i.e., the "slow boat from China").

I chose EMS

The shipping is a little pricey, and that's why I ordered multiple models - Peak stuffed all the planes in a single Binary-III box, which really helped get my money's worth out of the shipping. I figured I could easily sell the B900 locally if I never got around to building it... As promised, I had my box in about a week. I think USPS express mail took over the shipment after it cleared customs (I think that's right - I don't 100% remember what uniform the guy was wearing when he came to my door... but it was a standard domestic delivery service.)
