Shipping Surcharge

Ground Shipping Items

Some RC Planet's products can only be transported under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only, and cannot be shipped outside of the US. These products include:

  • Non-Water Based Paint and Paint Thinner
  • Petroleum-Based Oil
  • Aerosol Type Products
  • Traction Compounds
  • Tire and Body Cleaners
  • Epoxy / Accelerators / Debonder

The US Postal Service will not transport ORM-D items, and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.


For All Shipments: Special labeling requirements are needed to safely transport any Lithium products. Certain large Lithium Batteries will always require HazMat handling and will only ship via Fedex. If you would like to know more about FedEx and the safety precautions taken when transporting Lithium Batteries, please refer to the FedEx guidelines.

International Shipments: Lithium Batteries are regulated as HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) products and can be dangerous if not packaged properly for transportation. In smaller quantities, Lithium Batteries can be shipped via DHL without applying a HAZMAT fee. If you'd like to ship more than 2 Lithium Batteries, a HAZMAT fee will be applied for transportation. Please note that DHL only allows transportation of HAZMAT / Dangerous Goods to specific countries, some of which have limited service areas.

The US Postal Service prohibits international mailing of Lithium Batteries, as well as electronic devices that contain Lithium Batteries. These new regulations also prohibit shipments to or from Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Offices. Because of these regulations, no US Postal Service shipping options will be available during checkout.

Domestic Shipments: Both FedEx and the US Postal Service are available as shipping carriers for most Lithium Batteries and electronic devices containing Lithium Batteries. Please note that the US Postal Service has a limit of three batteries per shipment; you can refer to the Domestic Mail Manual for further information.


Fuel is classified as a "flammable" liquid. RC Planet can transport limited quantities of flammable liquid under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only. For larger quantities of fuel (Example: case quantities), it must be transported under HAZMAT. Transporting as HAZMAT means that the amount of fuel is considered hazardous and will be subject to shipping by Ground services, including a HAZMAT fee for the special transportation. Fuel cannot ship outside of the US.

Please note that the US Postal Service does not transport Fuel and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

Rocket Motors

Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets are classified as “Toy Propellant Devices” and can only be transported through Surface Mail with the US Postal Service’s Parcel Post. FedEx does not transport Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets. Please note that FedEx will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.

International Shipping Restriction


Due to circumstances and regulations that are beyond RC Planet's control, batteries cannot ship outside of the US when using the United States Postal Service as the shipping provider. However, RC Planet can ship batteries internationally using DHL International, but the quantity cannot exceed a total of 2 batteries with a capacity of 5000mah maximum. Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship this item to APO/FPO addresses and apologize for the inconvenience.


Due to distributor restrictions, the following brands are not available for sale outside of the 50 United States: Losi, Team Losi Racing, Blade, ParkZone, ECX, Hobby Zone, E-Flite, Vaterra, Dynamite, Pro Boat, Spektrum, JR Radio, Orion, and Hangar 9.

This is the Novak Vented Ballistic 550 Brushless Motor 4.5Turn.

  • Double the stator length of 540-size brushless motors for superior power and torque needed for monster trucks, 4Ă—4 Short Course vehicles, and extreme power enthusiasts
  • Vented end bells for lower operating motor temps, resulting in longer run-times and faster speeds
  • Sensor-based system for exceptional torque and low-speed driveability
  • Oversized 5mm front bearing for an increased load handling and bearing life
  • Re-buildable design with replaceable sensor harness, sensor board, rotor, hand-wound stator, both end bells, sleeve, ball bearings, and hardware
  • Adjustable motor timing allows fine tuning of motor feel and power band
  • Removable shielded sensor harness plugs into the silicone-sealed gasket to help keep dirt and debris from damaging the motor’s sensor plug, keeping your sensor harness secure
  • Nickel-plated, sintered Neodymium rotor with a rugged 5mm output shaft, compatible with Novak Mod 1 and 32-pitch steel pinion gears
  • Designed to meet ROAR specifications for 4WD Short Course racing
  • Team Novak’s commitment to excellent quality, support and warranty (120 days)
  • Designed and manufactured by Team Novak in Irvine, California using the best components from around the globe. All brushless motors are 100% tested to ensure your product works right out of the box and on the track!
4x4 Short Course racing really pushes the limit of your equipment. To combat the high temperatures and demands of the average 4x4 Short Course day at the race track, Novak created the Vented Ballistic 550 Brushless Motor- 4.5T. This is the exact motor that’s been taking drivers to the top of SC podiums in the racing world, but with the added performance and value of Novak’s vented end bells. The vents enable the motor to release the hot air, reducing the motor’s operating temperature and increasing the motor’s overall performance.

Novak used the same proven stator shape and design from their standard 540 motors, but this one has double the length of the rotor and stator to provide racers with the largest race-legal motor for 4x4 Short Course Trucks. This imposing motor means that your short course truck won’t have any power problems. Clearing triples, quads, even the entire five-pack will become a traction issue, and not a power problem! The vented end bells and proven Novak quality design means high performance and true reliability.

Like all of Novak’s Ballistic brushless motors, these motors are 100 percent rebuildable. At the track, service and repairs are a breeze and you’ll be back to running laps right away.

Great racers know that power is everything. Novak’s vented end bells allow you to really push the motors harder while not overheating. Lower temperatures mean the motor makes more power and can deliver that power much more effectively.
