Shipping rates are calculated based on the weight and destination of your order. You can see your shipping charge during the order process BEFORE you place your order. You can also utilize the "back" button to change the shipping method (i.e. Overnight service instead of Ground service) and recalculate the cost.
Special note on quoted shipping time: The shipping method you choose takes effect AFTER the "Availability" period listed next to each item. For example, if the item's availability shows "Usually leaves our Warehouse in 1-2 business days" and you choose "Next Day Air", your order will ship via Next Day Air after the availability period, in this example, 1-2 business days.
Special note for any order that contains rocket engines, rocket starter sets, R/C fuel and certain paints and paint sets: No hazardous materials can be shipped outside the continental United States.
