Default Shipping time from Hong Kong

Hey,
Just ordered a new M17 off RC Mart and it's coming from Hong Kong but they are a bit vague on the shipping time i.e. 7-20 days. I have a race the end of the month and I want the new radio for the race. Anybody have any experience with stuff coming from Hong Kong, maybe more specifically, RC Mart from Hong Kong shipping duration?
Thanks

I've had really good luck from RCMart and have things turn up in the 6-10 day range to Canada, so if you're in the USA it won't be too different to that.

I buy from rc mart all the time. I’m in Los angles and it’s surprising how fast the stuff get here from Hong Kong. My stuff always get to me in under 2 weeks.

You want to have it quick and bought it in Asia???? If you want it quick you should have bought it locally.

It is always a question. Not only the shipment but also how long it will stay at customs.

Never more than 2 weeks to Australia.

It's in transit longer once it's in the country, thanks to our lousy postal service.

7-20 days is fairly accurate, of the dozens of orders I have placed over the years from RCMart (aka Dinball on eBay), the fastest my order arrived was 1 week and the longest was 3 weeks with most averaging 2 weeks... if you are in a hurry to get something then you can pay extra to get the item in 2 days, I have done that once with success too!

Iíve ordered from Hong Kong before (not from rcMart), and like the above folks have said, that time frame, as vague as it is, can be fairly accurate. It all depends on how long the items sit in Customs, TBH.

I've had excellent results with rcmart (for over a decade, since back when they were dinball).
HK in general can vary (as can any country depending on shipping service used), but rcmart don't cheap out on shipping even for their cheapest option/s in my experience.

3 business days is my best delivery record from RC Mart. Pleasure to deal with, never any issues
