China Post Office or a shipping company?
I had a product ordered from mainland China sent via a shipping company, claiming delivery in 28 days. It was trackable. It flew into DFW, cleared customs, and stayed at the warehouse for two weeks. I was like 10 minutes away, I could have picked it up myself. Final mile delivery was a USPS contract (apparently). They apparently only service them every other week. It was picked up and delivered by USPS on the 28th day, as promised.
Remember, you also lost a day in there due to US Labor Day.
Curious what everyone is experiencing as far as shipping from China to the US. Recently ordered the CY HMS Medea from Hong Kong (I think). July 15 to Sept 9 to arrive in the central US. Ames, Iowa to be exact. Tracking for Chinese post is a bit hard to follow. As best I can tell it hit the US Sept 2. Left China Aug 14. Maybe. I knew it would be a while so I wasn't concerned or upset. Just curious what others are seeing.
Interesting kit. Should be an easy build, appears to be 3-D printed for the most part. The PE is nice and big so my ham-fisted building technique might be able to handle this.
