Urgent Help - Customs Expenses (Europe - Italy)

Hi I just received the courier who presented me with a € 178 bill to pay for customs fees (Europe - Italy) against an Element6 paid € 503.18, (35%) so far I have not withdrawn, but I have few days to reconsider

Single Controller: which one should i buy?

We recommend 46 cm size for kites 9 m and smaller and the 55 cm size for kites 10 m and larger.
Now, at the Moment I can affort the expense for only one controller and already have Element6 8mt and 12mt.
