Same experience here with EU

Expensive shippment or big package = sure customs control and delays.

It's better to order one-by-one even if you want to buy 2/3/4/5 pcs of heli/whatever.

Simple free shipping works best and comes only with stamp from customs "accepted for trade in EU" but no VAT/taxes.

Latest banggood shippment (since they need to be signed) appears in mail sorting system as "priority registered letter", it's not even package, so nothing to look about for customs, move along, NEXT ...

It takes 14-21 days, yeah it's a slow boat but for the price i accept it

HK post work just a notch better, they forward packages quicker once posted in HK, but shipping LiPo's with them takes ages (they go via Swiss Post/Zurich) so never do that! Be better off and order from chinese seller with china post.

I believe above counts also for US/everybody ^^
