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 Services 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.

Top Filite Stinson is a classic, our largest kit ever! Between the dark days of the Depression and WWII an aviation legend was born. The brainchild of E.A. "Eddie" Stinson, the SR-9 was a class act, a "looker" with style, yet designed to go the distance in powerful, practical performance. But more than a stylish aircraft with staying power, the SR-9 was a shining example of pride and excellence in craftsmanship, a combination celebrated in Top Flite's kit for the Scale Craftsman.

Rewards craftsman builders' investments of time, talent and TLC with a sport scale masterpiece that flies as good as it looks. Ideal for detailing! Created with plans scaled from exacting 3-views. Includes preformed ABS parts: a radial cowl; gear, strut and tailwheel fairings; wheel pants; and inspection plates.

Just as the full-size SR-9 was in its heyday, Top Flite's 100.5" span version offers larger-than-life looks blended with solid, powerful performance. Features all-wood parts, Gold Edition-engineered for better fits, greater strength and simpler structures. Eases transportation problems with a 2-piece wing design and access to hidden wing bolts in the cabin with cabin doors that open! Provides servo mounts in each wing panel to shorten and tighten linkages, and speed and strengthen control response. Compatible with a wide range of finishing methods for authentic Golden Age good looks. Wing blends from a "Clark Y" airfoil at the root to a Selig 8036 airfoil to provide comforting stability and graceful aerobatics.

Adapts to a wide range of 2-stroke, 4-stroke and gasoline engines for customized performance. Perfect with an O.S. FT 160 Twin. A 2-piece, plug-in wing provides a practical solution to transportation realities, and reinforcement to an already strong wing attachment system. The optional Cabin Interior Kit adds a wealth of detail for a modest investment. Ideal for building in or adding on.
