Ah no, that's really annoying. Is it with an post since the 10th? If so you can ring customer services, there's a number below the tracking.

Usually when it gets to Dublin, it's delivered next day. Is it from gearbest or tomtop? Sorry for all the questions.

The gearbest tracking says arrived London on 9th and on 10th it just said " Parcel is in clearance".... An Post doesnt reconize the tracking number online... i rang An Post earlier, they said they havent got it, so i presume its still with the customs? Don't really know whats going on and what to do tbh? any advice is appreciated ! I bought it off gearbest mate

Ah ok, if anpost don't recognize the tracking number it's a good thing. It means that it's not with Irish customs. I would get in touch with gearbest support and see what they have to say. Really strange it's taken this long.

Are you using http://www.faryaa.com/user/index/pac...fer/type/track for tracking?Seems to give good detail for stuff from gearbest using their Ireland priority post.

You could try ask in the gearbest forum but they rarely reply to anything. Just give coupons out every few days.

Cheers! Really nice morning for flying. Depending on winds, 18-21 minutes which is perfect once you have at least two batteries Fantastic solid bit of kit for the money.

Go to the last few seconds of video. One of them absolutely hates it! Not too bad though, luckily they're not as quick as the drone
