Hope someone knows the answers:

  1. Does DIY Drones Store ship to Europe, or should I rather choose jdrones.com? They used to have ArduCopter parts at lipoly.de, but this seems not to be the case anymore. Or are there any other options?
  2. On the DIYDrones Store one can buy an ArduCopter Quad v1.0 KIT, Partial Electronics, for 440$. How can I specify what frame size do I want?

if you can wait a week, wait...

there will be a new shop in the UK which will offer arducopter kit:

Thanks Sebastian. I see there are some changes going on, I was a little confused about what's up at first. Of course I can wait a week.

Where in Europe do you live? http://www.robonor.no in Norway sells kits and parts. I don't know if they ship outside of Norway.


Thanks Jahn, but Norway is not in the European Union, which, I think, means I'd have to pay double customs duty to import parts to EU from there (first USA/Asia -> Norway, than Norway -> EU).

Partially true -- Norway is not in the EU, but you won't have to pay double customs duty. There is no customs duty on electronic toys in Norway, and VAT is deducted when stuff is sold outside of Norway. However, shipping will be expensive.


For some reason, shipping between EU and Norway is far more expensive than shipping within EU.


We are still working to create proper distributor network. And now that Chinese New Year is over in China, we are starting to get parts again. Hopefully stock situation will get a lot better in next 1-2 months. We are working had to get production running smoothly.

Because jdrones.com is the company that manufactures ArduCopters, it is always first one to have them in stock if no one else have. They also have all the latest and newest parts available, even beta and test parts.



its always nice to hear good news from you jani :)


do you have plans to sell the full un-assembled kits too? i mean the frame, motors, ESCs, P-PCB, APM, IMU and GPS; all-in-one DIY kit. there are "fully assembled kits" and "frame minus electronics" kits but nothing in-between on jdrones yet. do you have an estimated date of availability.


keep up the good work :)

Do you have any links/info on this?



Good morning,

Old Post but maybe someone has information about this: I want to order the Hexa-C Copter from the US to Germany. Is there anyone that ordered a copter (Price $605), I'm just unsure how much the german customs are on this particular item. I know + 19% VAT but what's the customs percentage?

Thanks, Chris

Lipoly.de does stock APM and all sorts of bits and pieces for Arducopters etc. Try a search on Arducopter or Ardupilot. Also try http://www.unmannedtechshop.co.uk/ or http://www.buildyourowndrone.co.uk/
