Any other dealers like to contribute?

I have compared prices with a leading Kokam retailer in the USA: FMAdirect

Price is calculated on the Dollar ($) exchange of 7 ZAR + 14% VAT, NO SHIPPING COSTS included for or from USA.

Lipo are not allowed to be shipped airfreight anymore from the USA. (TowerHobbies and FMAdirect)
