    Shipping costs to Australia

    Hi
    I was looking at your site and put a 60 size plane in my cart $116, went to check out and the only shipping I could get was UPS at $163 (unbeliveable pricing system). On your site you state

    "International Orders (Air Parcel Post/EMS)
    Air Parcel Post – Most countries 5-14 business days, up to $250. (no tracking)
    EMS – Most countries 3-6 business days. (w/tracking and insurance)
    EMS is usually twice as expensive than Air Parcel Post

    Small order (el. motor, speed controllers, battery packs)......$8 - $15 (depends on weight)

    Medium order
    (parkflyer up to 0.40 size airplane).....$15 - $40 (depends on weight/size)

    Large order
    (.40-.60 size planes, oversized sailplanes)……$40 - $80 (depends on weight/size)

    XXL order
    (Large sailplanes, large ARF/ARC models).....Please call for us for shipping charges on larger items.

    My question is how do select EMS shipping when I go to check out?

    Thanks

    OK, I'm not Nitromodels support, but I've run into this before. You'll probably find that UPS is the only carrier available for an actual model, as the US Postal system does not carry boxes big enough to post planes. Unless you can find an option that I've missed you're stuck with ordering them from local retailers, just like me. Good luck.

    Cool.Thats what I thought might be the case. NM website is still not giving accurate shipping info. NM has been removed from my favorites and mu subscrition from the NM support thread has been terminated. I know this won't bother NM in the slightest but it makes me feel better.
