Normal shipping (parcel post from China) would have been about $51 but because I had more than 4500 mili ampere hours worth of Lipos, I was limited to priority EMS shipping, a whopping $79 shipping. I couldn't go through with it. I wanted to try several nano tech turnigy batteries, but at that high a shipping cost, I've got to look elsewhere.
Just one more reason we need a good source in the USA.
Hobby Partz are you listening?
