What I've learned from asian hobby shops is that you can't select cheapest shipping option then complain about arrival time. Looks like RCMart finally priced itself out of our market with the inflated shipping fees etc.

I've always done EMS/speedpost and gotten it within 4-5 days prior to covid, and its now about 7-14 days on the express methods available.

At this point Iím just hoping my xtraspeed portals arrive. It says they are in Ottawa and have been for a month. This will likely be the last time I order from them because the customer service is terrible.

Beware with Rcmart.

For a long time I had a strange feeling with the cost of shipping by rcmart, any shipping, titanium screws, bearings, immediately weighed a lot according to their website.

Today I received the last order and I have weighed it with a digital scale and it weighs about 300 grams.

I look at how much it weighed on its website and it says 590gr, the shipping for these 590gr was $ 21.65.

But the cost of the actual 300 grams is $ 12.57, almost $ 10 more.

A fraud

Did you weigh the packaging it was sent in? Most shippers include the weight of packaging in shipping costs.

Placed an order for a bunch of spare parts from rcmart for my touring car back on 23-05-2022. Received the package 20-06-2022, so shipping times look like just under a month to the GTA. No duties were due since the amount of the package was under $100. Will definitely use again if I can't find the parts at a local shop.

I placed an order yesterday. Checked the order "status", it says "follow up". Anyone with rc mart experience know what this means? This is my first order from them.
Thanks,
Rob...
