    Has any member in the UK posted (courier or otherwise) a Phantom 3 battery to someone in the UK. I had one for sale and have got a buyer for it but cannot get anyone to accept it as it is a restricted item.??
    If so, names of courier companies please.

    Help if possible friends.
    Thank you

    Just use the post office and say its a car part.........or give them the manual for the battery, it will say there are no more than 4 cells, just not sure about the weight, I dont think its more than 5kg though.

    You can also de-charge the battery before you pack it up, you may have to show it to the post office bod and re-seal it. Battery must not be able to move in the container. The standard DJI battery box would be best, has the foam and the battery is secure inside.

    I've used Yodel but did have the original safe packaging.
    I described it as radio control parts.
