International Orders with LiPo Batteries

NOTICE: Germany and Italy have formally notified US Postal Service that they will not accept packages containing lithium batteries (this does not apply to the APO, FPO, and DPO locations in Germany and Italy). Orders with lithium-based batteries that are not preinstalled inside their respective devices are not able to ship to locations outside the United States. If you order an RTF package, your battery will be removed. No refunds or credit can be given for the removed battery nor can it be substituted for another item of equal or lesser value.

Shipping Times

All items are shipped from our facilities once order processing and order packaging is completed. The times listed below estimate the expected number of business days it will take for in-stock merchandise(s) to be processed from our facilities before shipping. ("Business days" means Monday – Friday, excluding weekends and holidays.) In some cases, merchandise(s) may actually ship earlier than expected.
When you choose an expedited delivery method, we'll prioritize the processing of your order in our warehouse in order to meet the stated delivery time. It is the sole responsibility of the shipping carrier once the package has been transferred from Banana Hobby to Fedex, UPS (United Parcel Services) and/or USPS (United States Postal Service).
Please note that Banana Hobby has no control over the parcel once it leaves our warehouse, and cannot be held responsible for shipping damage(s) and/or lost package(s) once they leave our facilities. However we would still like to assist you if you encounter these issues. If an item arrives damaged and/or if it was lost by the shipping carrier, please contact Banana Hobby so that we may contact the shipping carrier on your behalf. Please note that after the carrier is contacted, they will required a certain amount of business days for investigation.

*Unfortunately Banana Hobby cannot estimate transit times for the shipping carriers. The tracking number is provided by the shipping carrier themselves and is for your order, which should show the estimated delivery time. Please note that the transit times are subject to change by the carriers. Please allow some time for the carriers to update their information.

Please note: Orders are usually not processed on same day the order was placed, but within 24 hours (provided that the following day is a business day and not weekend or a holiday). Therefore, even if you placed your order with an expedited shipping method and is placed before 2pm PST, it may not be processed in time for shipment that same day, but the following business day. If an order was placed on Friday, depending on the time the order was placed, it may not be processed until business resumes the following Monday (excluding Holidays). To avoid any delays, please plan ahead and place your order accordingly.
