I wish I got my broken VESCs fixed before brexit, bit worried about sending something for repair - its bound to be far more complex a thing than the uk gov has prepared for lol :expressionless:

Mine got held and they wanted a ridiculous amount of information i.e. materials its made of etc i wish i never put “repair” on it! Sent back to me however,marked as “gift” and €7 was no problem getting back in to the UK.

Well aware of the drv wizards reputation, i have used his services in the past, and wont send an esc all the way to eu for repair as i live in Hawaii. Was hoping i could avoid international postage for what may be a simple fix. I sent Johnny a dm but have not heard back yet.

Johnny told me he isn’t doing esk8 repair this summer. He is too busy and it’s “not worth his time”.

Thank you for the kind words and recommendation @WARMAN
I would just like to add to the customs issues, if you send the package as a “gift” or some other option that implies that you are not sending commercial package or goods you will be OK. You should also add a price of the goods lower than 20€ in most countries. I mark it as 7€ because 7 is a lucky number :smiley:
I should also mention that it is probably not very legal but as far as I am concerned most countries have far bigger problems than look for customs avoiding people that save a few euros and lots of time…

@Dmaxx Sending the device from Hawaii to Slovakia (central Europe) would most likely cost around 30$ plus postage back and repair would be another 40$ so at that point you might as well buy a new VESC… If you want to you can PM me some photos and what lead to the damage, I can give you pointers and links to what to order from Mouser/DigiKey to fix it, getting the service itself done would be cheaper locally at some computer or phone repair shop.

No worries Martin your work and service has always been spot on! I’ve learnt my lesson when it comes to customs,honesty is not the best policy! Be in touch soon…
