I made two other purchases since, one from a different seller in HK and one directly from Team Associated. Both have already been delivered but still nothing from RCMart and the tracking still does not work. It will be 3 weeks tomorrow and hopefully I will receive it this week.

This is my typical experience with RCMart and they always make you sign for every package regardless of size or value.
That sucks. I've only ordered full kits from them (three times this year alone) and always got the package within 2 weeks. I'm in Sudbury.

Maybe the shipping options to Canada are different. There are always only two for me, I only use EMS Express. They are only a few dollars difference.


I tried checking the tracking once and it didn't work. But I stopped because my orders always came in on time.
Do you have the same choices for shipping to Detroit?

Default Arrived in 10 days

I ordered from RCMart via their listings on ebay. I placed my order for a transmitter/receiver on Sunday 7/1/18 and it arrived today 7/11 to Maryland. Shipped from Hong Kong via postal service. Not too bad, especially since nobody in the USA currently has this radio in stock.

Edit: I forgot to mention, the HK Postal tracking number transferred to the US postal service, so I was able to track the package through its journey, and I was even able to use the USPS text alerts to stay current on its location once it hit the postal facility in New York. I wanted to be home when it arrived.

Yeah, I WAS (past tense) impressed by RCMart, until I placed my second order via ebay. I got an order confirmation on 7/26, an order shipped email from ebay on 7/27, and then a message on 7/29 stating that the part was out of stock and cannot be sent. Interesting that they can ship a product which they do not have in stock. I'm VERY disappointed. Not only will I not get the product, now I need to order it from someone else abroad since nobody in the US seems to have stock currently. So I lost 4 days when it will probably take 10+ days to arrive anyway. Sucks.

Canadian buyers, are you getting hit with brokerage fees? My brother ordered some batteries from Hobbyking and they came from China, he got nailed with brokerage fees.

I don't live in Canada but I do know when I bought a transmission for one of my cars it came from Toronto to Florida with a brokerage fee.

I've never had issues with shipping times from RC Mart to Australia, and over the years their shipping time estimates have always been perfect, however in the last twelve months I've noticed their pricing has gone up considerably as far as shipping is concerned. Maybe it's the costs being passed on from international shipping agents but it feels like shipping is negating any saving I may make over buying locally these days.

^^although in saying the above I still purchase 80% of my RC gear direct from RC Mart due to their professionalism and speedy delivery, not to mention their flash sales which offer a regular great deal

Checked out their site, saw some nice kits but they wanted almost $40 to ship. Seemed a bit much when kit was only 100 bucks.
