Help!
Where are canadians buying their lipo's from???

Just getting back into the hobby and have only owned a few lipo's in the past. Now needing some new lipo's I was wondering where canadians are buying them from since the NO USPS international shipping of lipo batteries. I know you can still ship via UPS or FedEx internationally but can't stand their brokrage fee's. Duties I can understand but when it comes to paying for shipping already then paying more than that amount again on delivery for brokrage and fee's, it just not worth it.

I'm assuming hobby king is one of them????????

thanks

HobbyKing for me as well. I was getting them from HobbyPartz, but they've stopped shipping to Canada since USPS stopped allowing LiPo's across the border.
