    Friday 23rd November.
    Hopefully they'll do the reduced shipping again which makes it very worth while.
    Still doesn't take the edge off that call from FedEx to pay for import duty though. :eek:

    So is it common for there to be Black Friday deals on cobra and presumably if dealing directly with cobra in the Us? None of our uk stockists are likely to do similar?

    Last time I checked, Sonic couldn't match the offers direct from the US.
    Cobra also do a Spring sale in March if I remember correctly.

    Sure is. Scott at Cobra confirmed with me that they’ll be running Black Friday deals that day. IF you mail him he’ll add you to the email alert list.

    Let's see how many people take that offer

    B19_TLG Pro Firer/Crew Supports UKFR

    I certainly will. Toying with an 18r2 and an 18m and also the 18m with 18r. Seems like a good deal.

    Anyone know what the going rate for customs clearance is these days?

    SwissTony Pro Firer/Crew

    Looking at 18r2 and 2x 18m (lipo and hard cases) same as above, how much to import?
  12. hofnerite

    hofnerite UKFR Stash Photo 2018 Winner! Supports UKFR

    I'll be getting a couple more 18Ms at least.

    Prices go up in 2019 too so even more of an incentive to buy now.
  13. Dodgey

    Dodgey Pro Firer/Crew

    3.7 % duty, plus vat at 20% , plus whatever the courier admin fee is. Usually about £10.

    Did it last year.

    Cobra emailed me saying they are increasing all prices next year by 5%, so best buy now!!

    Dodgey Pro Firer/Crew

    Checked my invoice. I spent £1860 on my last order. Fedex charged be £32.40 in fees (that's duty and fedex fees, so a lot less than 3.7% duty). On top of that was just the vat (I say "just" as I'm vat reg so I get it back, £340 ish)

    On my last £700 order, the 'extras' were as follows:
  17. SwissTony

    SwissTony Pro Firer/Crew

    1x 18r2
    2x 18m with case and lipo upgrade (one with free r1)
    Total $1587 Inc shipping, vat, 3.7% duty and UK courier

    Easy Pyro is £1311.60 for the same, minus the free 18r.

    o_O Are these Black Friday prices? Or do Easy Pyro heavily discount? o_O
    Last time I checked the Easy Pyro prices couldn't compete with the Cobra sale.

    Wouldn't it be cheaper if we sent the money to a reputable trust worthy person they put the order in that way although postage goes up slightly would be cheaper than all of us paying postage and customs on each package
  20. hofnerite

    hofnerite UKFR Stash Photo 2018 Winner! Supports UKFR

    Duty and VAT is based on the cost so wouldn't make any difference. Shipping cost me £30... so even if we could save on that £30 doing a bulk order, maybe get it down to £15, I'd still have to drive somewhere to collect it and back again.. probably saving a couple of quid at best.
    The other thing is if I buy it myself, I've got a record of purchase etc if I ever need support or repairs etc.

    Good idea on paper but in reality...:canofworms:
