Please be assured that Advantage Hobby strives to charge the lowest possible shipping fee for each order we receive. 

National 50 States Standard (non oversized) Shipping

Orders $59.99 and over: FREE!**

For orders under $59.99 a $6.99 Order Handling Fee will be applied**

**Excludes orders with Oversize items, or order weight total 5lbs or greater.

When the Ground Shipping option is selected at time of order, all orders will be shipped via the most cost effective shipping method at our discretion. Advantage Hobby ships all Ground Shipping orders using the most cost effective service provided by either UPS or USPS (United States Postal Service).



Oversized National (50 States) Ground Shipping

All oversized items are noted on our site as "Oversized" at the final checkout screen, with the shipping cost displayed, prior to finalizing your order. Oversized shipping charges are calculated to be lower than the actual cost of shipping, and are based on the approximate size/weight of each order or item.

National (50 States) 2nd Day Air and Next Day Air Shipping Options

Advantage Hobby uses UPS for all non-ground shipping options. When selecting a faster shipping option, you will be charged a flat additional shipping rate as follows:

Service Cost
3 Day Select UPS Service $29.99
2nd Day UPS Service $39.99
Next Day UPS Service $59.99


These fees are in addition to the Standard Ground shipping cost.

These shipping options are not available for oversized items, or orders with a total weight of more than 5lbs.

3 Day Select, 2nd Day, and Next Day service does not include Saturday delivery. Also, we cannot guarantee that UPS provides these services to your area from Champaign, IL.

These flat rate charges are in addition to the Standard Ground shipping charges, and will be added to the order total when selected.

Please note that in many cases, an order with a large item (ARF kit, etc.) will be charged by UPS as "dimensional" size (oversized) rather than at actual weight. For example, a medium sized ARF airplane or Heli kit may only weigh 5 lbs., but the dimensional weight by UPS standards might calculate to a billable "dimensional"‚ weight of 30lbs. A complete radio system might have an actual weight of 3lbs, but a dimensional shipping weight of 15lbs.

Please be assured that Advantage Hobby strives to charge less than the actual shipping cost charged to us by the carrier for each order..
