I want to order some small stuff, but it looks like they doesn't ship to Holland

Hi Guys,

The past few weeks I was very busy with an Roll en tilt compensated glasfiber mount. The tilt is 1:3 geared, and the roll is done by bearings, just like the MKTR mount.
I will offer these mounts soon for at least half the price you pay for the MKTR.
The problem is, i'm now very busy with the prototype, but the only thing I need to have are some gears from servocity.com.
I mailed them a few weeks ago, and after one week of waiting I finally received a reply,with the message that the shippings costst for some gears ( 4 gears, just for the proto) will be 36 dollar! I couldn't believe it, so i emailed them again, but till now I still havn't received any email from them.

I can't place an order at there site, because I don't see my country in there list, and I still havn't received any email, so this is the only way for me.

Is there mayby anyone who can order some gears from servocity.com and ship them to me?

I would be very, very thankfull if anybody would want to do that.
It's just for an amount of 13,62

I need them very hard, ant can't find any alternatives..

Thank you very much for any help, or suggestions.

These sites may or may not have what you are looking for but I hope it helps.

Remy the steps you want to get rid of are mainly produced by the controller not the servo itself. A servo is just a small dc motor with some gears and a pot meter. Some stabilizers or receivers have a very bad resolution and that produces the steps.

Hi servocity. I Think that was the problem. I already filled in the Form for foreign customers, en after that I immedeatly getted an answer.

Thanks, I made an order

Btw, brian, how is it possible that I must pay 36 dollars for shipping? isn't it possible to send it in a envolop at my own risk?

Doesn't matter. i already placed a bigger order.
