Deans are not allowed to be imported?

I ordered some dean plugs from HobbyKing and the package got returned to sender for unknown reasons. Even HobbyKing didn't know what was going on.

I then later ordered more from an Ebay seller in China, and he said the package got bounced back too:

Quote:
"due to the strict customs clearance for dangerous cargo package in Sep, and the National Holiday in China,that cause the package delay at the Hongkong customs for a long time"
I've ordered deans from HK a long time ago and didn't have a problem then, is this a restricted item now?


And if they ARE restricted. Where can I get them in Canada for a reasonable price? Everywhere else I looked they want like a $1 each.

Could be because it is battery related, and batteries are on the no fly list. Lazy customs people not doing their jobs properly

Really? I've purchased dozens of lipo's from the US. This is extremely frustrating.

Lipo's are dangerous goods for air flight, for a long time. I was surprised they ever shipped batteries via airmail lol

Deans aren't restricted, never will be, no reason to.
