What are the letters at the beginnin and end of the tracking number. This tells you what method it was sent. If the LiPo total capacity was over 3400mAh then it's probably been sent Hazardous air with Swiss post which will take a while probably.

Swiss post is the only carrier left that will transport LiPos if the package is declared as having LiPo's in it from what I understand. It is treated as Hazardous goods. Best bet is to contact HK via their support center and ask them, although I suspect they will just give you the same answer. I've had a couple of swiss post orders sent now. One took 2 weeks, and the other was about 3 weeks.

Phone line only refers the caller to the Support centre.

Goto Live Support and then to Customer Support Centre and Submit a Request.

Give them the whole story and sit back and wait a week more or less. They'll notify you by email with an answer. If you don't like the answer, reopen that request and add to it.

It works, I just tried it to make sure.

So is this only because it is a Lipo? And if so, would it be a good idea to only order Lipo's from their USA warehouse if I live in USA to avoid such a long delay?
