If you are asking about having to pay a US Customs duty to bring your personal Phantom into the US, the answer is no.

If you were bringing in 10, still sealed in box, probably.

Just remember to purchase a charger with the US electrical plug so you can charge your batteries or a converter plug for our electric. The most common plug is the ones on the left.

The last time I thought I could go to the local Batteries Plus store for a C7 to NEMA 1-15P cable, I was wrong. They didn't even have a coin cell with leads for a motherboard.

I have a few items that use the same cord set, but still have my international electrical plug set.

Now, I just assume that I'm going to need the part and order from the eBay or Amazon.
Owning a second charger won't hurt, especially if the charger takes a dump. Try getting one of those when you need one ASAP.

oh i agree, having backup of backups is a must. i was merely giving another option. and that is why i opted to buy yet another 100w charger, instead of a hub, as with the 3 chargers i have, i can recharge 3 batts at same time, very useful if one is on the go. i may still get the hub too, for when i get home i can charge 4 and forget about them, well u shouldnt leave the un supervised though, so im confused why do i want a hub to make my life easier but it is recommended not to leave lipos unattended while charging. i really would rather watch paint dry!!

Nah, the Philippines is a breeze, at least for Americans.

Any of the north African countries are the real shake down artists. Just figure any small electronic items as a "gift" for their services.

I used to pack in my hand carry flashlights as "gifts" to ease my way through customs. The same for knock off ball point pens of famous brands. It was supposed to be against company policy to offer them, but it's the way of life in some of the poorer countries.
