Question
Hobbyzone Champ in India?

Hi All,

I am newb in RC flying and I want to buy a HZ Champ along with some spares. Can I get some suggestions from where can I buy it so that I dont have to spend crazy amount of money in Shipping and dont have to face an issues with Customs.

Also, I know that most of these products are made in China, is there any reliable site from which can directly order RC stuff from China? I guess we will be able to save a lot in shipping then.

I would also like to know if anyone has had any bad experiences, atleast we will be warned.

Regards,
Amol

@Amol, I recomend that you do NOT buy a Ready To Fly plane from a online shop in China or HongKong because the Customs Office will impose heavy Tarrif and more than likely ask you for a bribe to clear your package.

Most online searches will lead you to manufacturers in China or Hobby Shops based out in America. The Chinese manufacturers offer affordable pricing, but the product details/specifications leave much to be desired. The American online stores offer precision build parts but the price is usually comparatively higher as well. The other obstacle is shipping costs and custom duties levied when the shipment (your plane or parts) enter India. The shipping costs to India ranges from $10 to $40 based on the weight of the merchandise and its delivery speed (EMS, Overnight, FedEx, etc).

You may or may not be aware, that importing of 2.4 Ghz/FM Transmitter/Receiver to India is not allowed unless you have an import license from the Govt. Of India. As such, I recommend that you visit a local hobby Shop in India or purchase from an Indian Web based hobbyshop (they stores have the licences to import from outside the country).
