Default Hobbyking Shipping options

OK, I see that Hobbyking has different shipping options available.
International Air Mail ($40 limit) 0 - 100gr $2.99
International (Registered) Air Mail 0 - 100g $3.99
EMS Express to USA (under 500g) $18.95
UPS Express 3 Day (USA) 1kg $32.79
SingPost AirParcel 2kg / 7-21Days $39.89

Ive always used the first option. The cheapest! Does the (registered) air mail (2nd option) and faster? I just ordered a small part and got the 2nd one for the first time. Im hopping its a little faster. Anyone know?

I bought two packs from this place that said they were available in the US werehouse. Long Story Short. Cancelled order. Was going to take nearly a month to get here from Hong Kong. Emails are very vague on details, One email says it was processed and was going to ship, then when I contacted them via live chat they said it was going to ship from the international werehouse in Hong Kong and take 10-to 29 days. WTF......

I hope its a tad faster. I just got a Flux 2350 today and two Thunder Power 8000 22c packs to find theres a third type of balence plug Gezzz! There needs to be a standard for these like servo and esc plugs. I figured they would have the Hyperion type which is a quick mod away from using my JST plug. But no... It doesnt look like thats gonna work. Is there a Mod to charge these? Like the Hyperion plug(move around the wires and charge on 4s port)
