Shipping within the USA
We have updated our shipping system to make it easier to get your orders when you need them. We have Economy which takes three to ten business days (usually 3-5 business days), Express which takes two to three business days and Next Day which delivers within 1-2 business days based on when you order.
Alternatively, you may choose UPS Guaranteed, which will guarantee your shipment to be sent out with the carrier and shipping method you specifically choose. For example, UPS Next Day Air.
As we are based in Sarasota, Florida, Economy Shipping can be a good and economical service option.
Shipping to countries outside the USA / International Shipping
GetFPV now offers DHL for international shipping at an affordable rate. Shipping packages to outside the US can get expensive and various shipping options can take a long time. Generally, if you choose Economy Shipping, be prepared to wait many days, if not weeks, for your order to arrive. These packages are often held up in outgoing customs as well as in incoming customs once the package arrives in your destination country. All of the Economy Shipping methods are generally challenged by the fact that the package is handed from USPS to the local postal service of your destination country. This "hand-off" often creates delays and issues with solid tracking information. Economy Shipping may not provide any tracking for shipments to countries outside of the US. When tracking is available for packages, it often shows only sporadic tracking details.
We strongly advise against using Economy Shipping for international orders as it is the slowest and most unreliable shipping method available. If your order costs more than $40, we would always advise you to pick a more reliable shipping method such as DHL.
Generally, almost 100% of the packages we send arrive at their destination country even if a package is severely delayed. We've seen packages 'disappear' in a black shipping hole only to re-emerge weeks later at the customer's destination.
Where is my shipment?
If you want to get an idea of the status of your order (like "Has my order shipped yet?"), log in to your GetFPV account and look at your order history. Each order will show if it was shipped and provide a tracking link, if available, given your selected shipping methods. If your order status shows shipped but you do not see tracking that means your order is packaged and will be shipped shortly.
If your status is processing it means that we have received your order and will be shipping as soon as possible.
How long until my order ships?
You should plan for at least 1 business day from the time your order is placed until it is shipped. While we do our best to get all in-stock orders that are placed before 2:30 (EST) shipped out on the same day, we cannot always guarantee such short processing time. Please also keep in mind that the number of days refers to "business" days, that is Monday through Friday.
Make sure you review our Terms and Conditions with important details relating to shipping.
