    Hi Martin555
    Yes the South African Post Office is uplifting itself and now belongs to the Universal Postal Union. So any parcel can now be fully tracked from shop to post office and you can see all the steps in between with 17trackπŸ‘πŸ‘

    Just heard from better half no mail being sorted in shutdown - SA PO's only open for pension payments - couriers very reluctant to deliver anything unless its medical , foodstuff etc.

    Guys
    If you are looking for International track and trace from any member of the Universal Postal Union use their website called 17 Track type in the Tracking Number and tells the whole story. I pay with Paypal and I have only had one shipment go missing. Got a Paypal refund!

    Hi
    Being a 1/14 Scale RC Trucker ( for my sins) I import quite a bit through RC Jaz, RC Mart, and Banggood (Operate out of HK), I find a lot of their electronics quite a bit cheaper. Don't know about now as the good old ZAR has had the backside of it. But speed controllers, motors, switching systems are cheap. I use Flyski Radios both in trucks and boats. Get those at R1100.00 Rand from Loukies Bait Boats in Steeldale. That's the FX6 I Computer 2.4G Radio complete! Easy to programmeπŸ˜€πŸ˜€. I have a Hitec Optic Six but to convert it to 2.4Ghz costs a fortune Also battled to programme the thing, The above Hong Kong companies ship with track and trace. My stuff for my truck is at JMIC and won't go through Customs until we are out of lockdown☹️☹️☹️. Genuine boat fittings I buy via Cornwall Model Boats. By the way the above HK companies have different options but airmail tracked and signed for takes about 4 weeks but can easily be tracked via the Universal Postal System. Search for 17 Track for tracking you can trace things very easily. Good Luck
