When chinese jade shipment arrives, will it be alright to ask how much it'll cost to get a box that's 3'x1'x1'. I may try getting a helicopter kit next.

Got several recommendations for ehirobo.com. Ordered a receiver unit to test it out. $4.56 shipping fee via Air Parcel. Lets see how long this one takes.

Lots of cheap helis. A flybarless 450 sized heli is only about 5,600php. I really need to ask at the post office what the fees i'll be needing for pay to release it if i ever get one.

I got the item from terrencejade.com. It was ordered on the 13th, it arrived in the philippines on the 20th, and i got a notice for pickup on the 26th. That's 14 days.

Front


Back. Pretty fast. Fee is also 40php even tho the declared value is $27.00


All that fit in the little white box in the upper left, which also contained the spare main chasis.


The red pouch had a jade pendant in it.

Test ordered a receiver unit on Sep 20. Arrived Sep 27. Received pickup notice Oct 3. 13 Days. And the usual 40php fee.


Things to note. There's no printed receipt inside. Your email and phone number are printed on the side.

Uh-oh

Ordered a big one last Oct 10, had it shipped via "Speedpost" which seems to go via plane. Arrived last fri Oct 12 and has been labelled "Pending Customs Inspection) ever since. This hasn't happened when i used "Air Parcel".

Should i be worried?

Package arrived.

Ordered Oct 10 Wednesday last week, arrived in the philippines thursday, got held by customs friday, passed customs Oct 18 thursday night, got called by Pacita post office today friday.

Fee is 40php.


I guess Speed Post is more detailed than Air Parcel. When i checked this morning the site said i should go to the post office to pick up the package. Sure enough, less than an hour later, i got a text message asking me to go to pacita for a pickup.

Now i just have to take these parts and turn them into a working helicopter.

I may have a problem guys.

Ordered from eHirobo on Dec 10th, it arrived on Dec 22. No problem.

Ordered from eHirobo on Dec 18th, it arrived in the Philippines on Jan 5, it is now Feb and i personally went to the Post office the other day to check and they say there's nothing on their system. So where is it? I asked for a number on who to call and they can't give me one.

There's another order back on Jan 10th, it arrived in the philippines on the Jan 22nd, and now i'm wondering if that one's lost too.

My bad, si Hajile pala yung may nawalang package.
Yes, Johnny Air is pretty good.

The problem with international mail is eventually the package ends up with the Philippine Post Office.
