Does anyone know of a Yuneec dealer that has a carrier that can ship the H battery overseas.
I've just tried 2 and they've both declined.
We don't even have a price here in Oz, but I do know that when they make the announcement it will be outrageous, even taking into account import duty, taxes freight etc.

Our NZ distributor has them listed at NZ$169 including 15% GST (about AUD$157) They aren't here yet, but have been told "they will be soon".

I've had Q500 batteries shipped to Australia from Carolina Dronz in the past.

Acedeals had them and will ship.
I also use a freight forward company to get stuff from USA.
I just used http://www.hopshopgo.com
They are $28 for 500g then $4.8 / 500g
You can send only 2 batteries each shipment in the one box.
So if you want 4 batteries, you can have 2 in the one box send it, then in a separate shipment send another two. The total per shipment can only be two.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for that Haydn, checking it out now.

You get a unique address have ace deliver to Oregon then they send it to you.
I organised a shipment on Friday 4:51pm our time.
It was delivered today at 3pm, using the express option. They sent it DHL.
Very happy so far. Used my PayPal account so didn't have to give CC details. Used American express card in Paypal. Bank does the currency exchange, cheaper than using the Paypal conversion. Ace also across Paypal I think other wise CC.

Checked DHL here today, they said the battery situation is fine as long as it's being sent with the item it fits, ie the Typhoon H.
On their own, they won't touch it. You say the Hopshopgo option works just on the batteries, maximum 2 per package?

Yes.
You can order more but have to pay the base rate each two.
Seems stupid..... But that's the rules.
You can read it on their site as well. But I had a very long chat with a representative on Friday confirming the ins and outs.
You can call me tomorrow if you want to know any more. O4IOSB4S7S.
You can work out I'm sure :p

Also,. At US$89 each plus shipping it comes to AU$298 Australian, plus currency conversion from your bank.. Maybe another AU$5
I was working on Australian price of batteries of $150 anyway. So other than not wanting to wait. Wasn't worth it.
But if they are going to be AU$180 it may tip the balance to import.
At US$109 or more, not worth it.

Haydn, that website is asking for paypal signin. is it safe? I am a bit paranoid about (my IT background maybe).

As I said I just used them last week. Went well. Was using MyUs.com before that. But these guys are cheaper.

The $89 was from a different supplier. I was showing that IMO I wouldn't want to pay more than that else it is not worth it.
