If you have ordered multiple products, we will ship them together instead of individually. If you want to receive products individually as soon as they are available, place separate orders.

Orders over £119 for delivery within the United Kingdom are sent by courier for next day delivery after your purchase funds have cleared.
Does RTH Drones provide an overnight delivery service?
Sorry, RTH Drones does not currently provide an overnight delivery service. This service may be available in the future.
Do I need to pay customs and import charges for my order?
If the products are shipped from abroard, do I need to pay customs and import charges for my order? Customs fees, and VAT where applicable, are already included in the product price when purchasing products from our online store. However, you may be asked to pay a charge by local shipping agents. If you encounter this situation, we strongly advise you not to pay them, and contact our online sales support on our Live Chat facility, or you are able to leave a message when out of hours. Dedicated staff will be available to help you.

If I am staying at a hotel, or at an address other than my home address, can I get my order delivered at a requested time?
Unfortunately, not at this time.
What happens if my package is rejected or returned?
If an order is returned to us due to inaccurate or incorrect address information or because it was declined or undeliverable, RTH Drones reserves the right to retain the original shipping/handling fee and to deduct certain amount in the refund for costs incurred related to the return of the undeliverable packages or merchandise.
Is it necessary to inspect the received package and included products upon delivery?
Upon delivery, please inspect the item to be sure it’s the correct model, in operable condition, and not damaged. Do not sign the delivery manifest until you have inspected the item. Once you sign for the item, you are accepting the product as is.
Please note that claims for missing items or items damaged in transit must be received within five business days of receipt.
What do I do if items were damaged or missing upon delivery?
Damaged in delivery:
If there is damage to the package, or if merchandise is missing, please keep the original shipping carton and contact us immediately so we can issue a damage claim with the carrier.
Please do not return the merchandise without going through these steps, as it delays the replacement of the order or the issuance of a credit.
All missing items claims must be reported within five business days of delivery. We highly recommend you view unboxing videos for each product. Contact us to report a missing or damaged item from shipment.
What happens if my item is on backorder?
In the event that an item is out of stock or for any other reason is unable to be shipped, we will notify you in time. We will keep the order open unless told to cancel it. When the item is in stock, we will ship it out immediately.
Due to high international shipping costs and taxes and duty fees, we cannot ship any international order that includes backordered items. We will hold the order until all items are in stock and available to ship. Please contact us if you wish to cancel or change these items.
Can I apply for a VAT refund with the invoice provided by RTH Drones?
No. We are currently offering the fastest delivery service for our customers. In order to do that, the delivery company handles customs clearance as well as pays tariffs and VAT on the behalf of our customers.
Therefore, customers are not able to apply VAT Refund in this situation.
