I was checking their site and shipping to Canada free is only from the global warehouse and for $150.00 and over except for planes .
Planes are not free shipping
I knew there had to be a catch

All orders of USD150 and over, qualify for free shipping from the Global warehouse to the following countries only: US, Australia, Great Britain, Japan, Korea, Canada, Israel, Germany, France, Italy, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, China, Philippines, New Zealand, Netherlands, Malaysia, Belgium, Austria, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. The maximum allowable weight to qualify for free shipping from the global warehouse is 20kgs.

Product exclusions: Around 800 SKUs including bulky items like e-bikes, scooters, 3D printers, planes and cars are excluded from the Free Shipping offer from the Global Warehouse.

Maybe they mean real planes

Bailey

I ordered some parts from Distribution Modelist in Laval and Michel was more than accomodating. I received them in one week needless to say from the states because you can't get anything from Canada in this hobby especially if you are requiring parts for Dynam planes. I was able to get the motor which is hard to get from Motion R/C at a very reasonable price shipped to Canada. Motor was $29.00 US and shipped with conversion for $34.00.

I just checked, the new free shipping option is from USA warehouse, for orders above $50. I added in cart batteries only. However, from USA Fed-ex might charge duty taxes (usually they call to let you know about extra charges), the brokerage fee is ridiculous. You should call Fed-ex once you have the tracking number. Let them know you will clear yourself with CBSA and ask for the manifest. It is a bit complicated, better use this thread to gather 2-3 for global shipping (min $150). Cheers!

PS
Check this out, as examle:

Has anyone ever shipped anything from Chariots GCS (in Quebec)? I'd be interested if the shipping time is bearable.
