it is actually a coincidence since I just bought it almost a month ago on my trip to Japan.. but now I forget where did I put those.. EP is very dying in here.. all those nice high-tech gear will become old soon...

In case anyone knows, I saw an expensive item and did not dare to buy (about 50USD/pc). Its round, about 6-9mm diameter, black color, very thin like 0.2-0.3mm kind of paper/thick sticker. I think you stick this in on top of your ESCs...

The new customs rules are that all containers that belong to you must be 100% completely cleared before they will release any. In a letter that is on the RC America web site they state that its the biggest order they have ever had. That there are many textile items (which may be subject to duties) as well and many containers.

If the order is really large, then there will be many containers. Not all the containers are always on the ship next to each other. So, its not that they can start with container one and go to N and get them all done. Also, due to the limited number of inspectors, its not like they go revisit a set containers every day.

Also, there is a ton of paper work that must be processed and the origin and destination companies have to be looked at and researched to make sure they are not part of terrorist network etc. etc. Basically, the whole inspection is now more thorough and painfully slow.

My brothers company deals with this all the time. The trick is to get enough inventory so that by the time the next shipment arrives, you are ready for more but your customer never sees the delay. Because RC America started with zero inventory, this initial shipment is a little more painful than the others.

It was bad planning on their part on top of rule changes that just happened and so everyone is out of luck for a little while.

also, you have to remember the original xray shipments were coming through a florida port, now they are comign through Texas and you can bet that the guys in customs have never seen any of this stuff, so I am sure that they are checking it a little closer then future shipments

They have to be at 90 degree in order to have the same response feeling between L/R
