Getting a drone is much more of a hassle now with customs, compared to the last time I got my drone it was a breeze. This time, however, the experience was the complete opposite, Aramex called me and told me I have to go through customs and get my drone out myself.
Things you should know before ordering a drone online:
- Make sure you have an SUV, going through customs and getting your papers done with super crammed parking lots will result in a lot of over the lane parking
- You’re going to sweat, a lot. There’s a ton of walking in direct sunlight involved and you’re going to end up sweating like a rockstar so make sure you have comfortable shoes and your least favourite shirt on
- You’re going to sign an oath, which is ridiculous because I can simply go to a shop and buy a drone without signing anything
- You’ll end up paying the price difference of the drone anyway, I paid over 30KD for everything, which is more than what it would cost to buy the drone locally
So basically buying a drone online won’t save you much money, will get you to sign an oath and will cause you a headache for a day or two getting all your custom papers done. I should have just waited for AAB or someone else to sell it and bought it from them.
The drone itself is nothing short of amazing, it’s like the Tesla of cars but for drones, super intelligent and smooth. Will definitely work on a review for it soon.
