Swiss Post; A Positive Review

I thought I would put this in the thread on Swiss post through Hobbyking, but I decided not to because the post is probably not viewed too often anymore. Moreover, I thought that I would share my views on Swiss Post from Hobbyking with the RC world, because not everything is as bad as it sounds.

Firstly, here are my charts indicating the position of the package, just to show all you skeptics that this is the real deal;

2013-04-15 14:27:25 Departed warehouse JAMAICA NY 11434
2013-04-15 14:26:50 Received at warehouse JAMAICA NY 11434
2013-04-15 13:18:00 Cleared Customs
2013-04-11 16:46:50 Departed warehouse SWISS POST HNG 852
2013-04-11 11:44:35 Received data FOTAN HNG 852

Unlike all the negative press on Swiss Post and their delivery from Hobbyking, I can say that this order from the Hong Kong Warehouse has taken less than a WEEK to arrive. I am very pleased; it now says it will arrive tomorrow. I will again post on the quality of the packaging, but I am very satisfied with the delivery speed.

By the way, I ordered on the 9th of April. Perhaps what you should get from this thread is that Swiss Post does not constantly deliver packages months late, as usually depicted.
