* Delivery Time - These are the delivery estimates provided by our shipping partners and apply from point of dispatch, not from point of sale. Once your parcel leaves our warehouse, we cannot control any delays after that point.
6. Customs & Import fees
Such as the products you buy on our site - can't simply be shipped freely from country to country. When goods are imported into a different country or customs territory, there is a charge called Customs Duty that must apply. This is charged by the local customs authority where the goods are being imported into.
If Customs Duty is payable to your territory, you'll be responsible for paying it to the authorities, so SunFounder isn't involved in this process. Whether Customs Duty is payable, and by how much, depends on a whole lot of different things. For example, many countries have a 'low value threshold' below which they do not charge any Customs Duty.
If you do have to pay Customs Duty though, the amount payable is usually calculated based on the value of the goods and the type of goods being imported.
AND IF I DON'T PAY THE CUSTOMS DUTY?
If, for whatever reason, you refuse the customs fee and the parcel is returned back to us. If you're still unsure on whether you'll be subject to customs fees, we recommend contacting your local customs office for more info before placing your order!

The PiCar-V is an open source robot learning kit based on Raspberry Pi. Equipped with a wide-angle USB webcam, it is powerful together with three whole new circuit boards and less but simpler wiring. (Compatible with RPi 4B/3B/3B+/2B/2B+, Raspberry Pi is NOT included)
Some constructure plates in a well-designed structure, solid, durable and shatterproof. Complete code suitable for almost all platforms to control the car.
Python code is provided for the car, and you can also program and debug it with Dragit, a Snap-based graphical interface, by just simple dragging and dropping the code blocks for complex functions.
There are many ways to control the robot remotely: with the app on PC (works on any OS), you can control the car and the cam's direction on the UI and view the image it takes in real time; or, with the related code, realize the same functions on a web browser, means it can works with any mobile phones, tablets, etc.
Real-time Video Transmission
Equipped with the Wide Angle 120° USB camera, which provides a wide and clear vision, you can view image and video taken in a web browser on your device by wifi in real-time.The 2-axis pan-and-tilt servos enable the camera to film in a range of a hemisphere,for you to easily control the angle of filming video and image, the image transmission is in high efficiency, which makes image transmit in real-time.
Blockly and Python Program
Python code is provided for the car, and you can also program and debug it with Dragit. A visual programming language software is provided for easy coding. Even if you don't have programming basis, by means of easy code blocks complex functions can also be realized.
DIY Your Robot Car
Examples given to expand your knowledge. In addition to using the keyboard to control the status of the car, we also wrote a ball tracking code. After the code runs, find a red ball (at least larger than the diameter of the camera) and put it within 10-50 cm range in front of the camera to get the car to follow your ball.
Multi-type Device Remote Control
With the app on PC (works on any OS), you can control the car and the cam's direction on the UI and view the image it takes in real time; or with the related code, realize the same functions on a web browser, means it can works with any mobile phones, tablets, etc.
- Speed Level-There are some number buttons on the keyboard to adjust the car’s speed, ascending from level 1 to 5. With Servos to control movements of the car, this makes the car turn more accurately.
- Durabl Material -Support solid plate and the white Servo Motor can well protected by Torsion protection, Power failure protection after over load.
