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 Batteries:

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.

More information about Top Flite Contender .60 Size Kit TOPA0210

Top Filite Sport Model Airplane, Fast, fun and better than ever!In 1969, Top Flite introduced the Contender, an aerobatic kit that was so enjoyable to fly, modelers are still showing them off at the field to this day. To commemorate the 30th anniversary of this R/C club favorite, Top Flite unveils the new Gold Edition Contender. It's everything that made the original Contender so much fun, along with Gold Edition engineering that makes it even easier to assemble!

CAD-designed parts and interlocking construction allow the Contender to be ready to cover in about 10-16 hours, with very little carving or shaping. Comes with lots of premium-quality hardware, including rod-in-tube pushrods and wire tricycle landing gear. The Contender flies exceptionally well with a .46 engine, and the included, adjustable mount accepts any engine in the recommended range up to a .61. Dual aileron servos deliver swift, sure input to the plane's lightweight, built-up control surfaces, for amazing authority when performing demanding aerobatics.

The D-tube wing goes together as one piece for fast, easy assembly, without the need for a joiner or fiberglass tape. Fuselage sides are formed from one-piece, die-cut 3/32" balsa.

Concealed on the bottom of the fuselage, a handy hatch provides easy access to the Contender's fuel tank and radio gear compartment. The unique, center-flap option shown here allows fliers to make short "carrier" landings. All control surfaces are stick-built to minimize flying weight. Without on-board gear, the Contender weighs a mere two pounds and eight ounces, which contributes to its impressively agile flight performance with engines from the low end of its displacement range.

Includes: All wood to build the kit, full size rolled plans, photo illustrated instruction manual with reference plans, clear canopy, CA hinges, nylon adjustable engine mount, hardware package and decals


  • Engine: .40-.61 2-stroke or .52-.70 4-stroke
