FedEx is also raising their rates again Richard. Good thing the U.S.P.S. is a self sustaining non-profit business...

I don't know how the postal companiesn calculate their rate but Hongkong/China based companies can make the shipping cost so cheap for international.

I bought remote control, Lights, parts etc always from such companies listed on Ebay. A remote control is only $5 that is shipping included worldwide!!

I though it would be shipped via a snail mail that would take months to arrive... but apparently it was not. It used air mail service and with tracking too! Once I received via DHL!!!

So how they actually calculate the rate??

Just the other side note, if I am buying the same remote control here that would be $12 alone not include my fuel cost and parking 😂
