We’re thrilled to announce that, as of today, 3D Robotics will be resuming exports of our autopilots and RTF vehicles to 44 countries! Those countries are:
Albania, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
If you’re located in one of these countries, you’ll be able to order these items from us beginning immediately. This applies to both our regular customers and our dealers. Dealers and other resellers, however, should be aware that these items are being exported using license exception STA, which requires somewhat special handling both for us and for you. We’ll be in contact with all of our distributors and prospective distributors about the details of this arrangement.
As many of you know, we’ve already resumed shipping many items to all countries, including cables, hardware, batteries, fiber plates, motors, and various other items. And if your country isn’t among the 44 listed above, please be assured that we’re moving as quickly as possible to expand exports to all international locations.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support as we work through this process! And once more, happy flying!

Conanony: We've discussed this many times in the other thread. It was due to a Department of Commerce export control review of all US autopilot/UAV companies in the consumer space.
