Hobby King Canadian orders?

Any Canadian members have any experience ordering from Hobbyking.com?

Would like to know what sort of duties and taxes you had to pay on orders?

How long for delivery as well?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hum..... I think I am just lucky. I have ordered lots of parts and batteries from them and only one shippment had been opened by custom. I guess they don't usually open package around or under $100 CDN. The fastest order i got about 10 days and latest about a month.

Just ordered parts for a quad delivered to GTA. Delivery is fairly quick 2 weeks to fill a big order (5kg, $500 of parts) using the cheapest shipping method possible. Hobby-king has cheap parts and a great selection but horrible customer service - if it doesn't work consider your money wasted as the return fee/hassle isn't worth it. I split my order into 2 to try and avoid taxes but customs still opened and checked everything. Ended up paying about 10-15% taxes on declared value. Hobbyking will declare full value on items. I have heard of people calling in and asking them to declare a lower value - they do it but this is illegal if you get caught.
