I was ordering 3 servos, 2 sets of blades, and couple of little LiPos for my Mini CP, and an extra main and tail motor and the shipping was >$21 for HK shipping. I think that even HK would blush if they charged that much.

My time is easily worth as much as yours, but I'll wait an extra week and spend the shipping money on something else. If I were desperate and they were the only game in town I would probably go for it, but their low prices are more than made up for in shipping charges. There are others out there with a blanket charge of $5 or so or free shipping and they probably don't take any longer to ship than these guys. I know that from personal experience. If enough of us complained they'd lower the shipping prices. Is it not possible that us non-Asians are being ripped off? Nahhh, they love us.
